Hi on startup my PC take sabout 10 mins until the SvcHost.EXE application has stopped hogging my CPU by 100%. Anyone know why it would do this? Everything freezes until it slowly works its way through whatever it is doing. Looking forward to any comments. Thanks Rob

I think you have to scan your pc with a antispy program in safe mode.It's possible that you have a spyware or a trojan in your pc.
