Title: CPU usage 100% Windows 7
Post by: arkredneck on December 28, 2015, 01:39:18 PM
Windows 7, 32 bit.  CPU usage is 98 to 100 % with no programs running.  Task manager shows svchost(netsvcs) pid1204.  Is there a way of getting rid of that process?  My computer is running very slow.   Joe

Boot up into Safe Mode with Networking, download and run ESET Free Online Scanner.

http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/

Check the two PuP boxes then click on Advanced and check all of the boxes with Archives being optional.

There's also a box to check for auto uninstall when done.

If ESET comes up clean then work your way through this tutorial -

Follow that link from Boggin , and it will almost certainly fix your problem
I only wish I knew of it sooner .... it would have saved me hours of work

See my posts in the thread  " Resource-hogging service  ...etc "

You can grab my technicians toolbox from my site and in it open the svchost services to see what services are running on that one. I am willing to bet it is Windows updates doing its check. trying turning off windows updates (Set it to never check) and see if that fixes the CPU problem.

Most of the time it is due to windows updates using Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) .. BITS uses binpath= “c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs”.. Simply by disabling windows updates or by disabling BITS service you can get rid of bandwidth eating. But disabling Windows updates is not recommended, since windows operating system updates /security updates will protect your pc from known vulnerabilities that are discovered time to time. You can use third party utility   to limit/schedule downloads as you wish.

easy way to kill bits from hogging resources at that moment is open up notepad type in this script save as .ps1 and run with powershell.

Code: [Select]
import-module bitstransfer
