    svchost Service Host: Local Service (No Network) - CPU (10-15%) usage

    Hi guys,I just can't figure out why is this module using my CPU continuously (10%-15% usage).I've attached a screenshot and the ETL file for you to analyze this.You can download the ETL file from here.

    High CPU usage Service Host: Local Service (No Network) - CPU (10-25%)

    I have this exact problem that SlyBytes has. don't see any responses to the problem what to do with this. I used this group to fix high CPU usage from ICS by disabling it and it lowered for a while then this issue came up and made the CPU usage go up not as much as before but higher than it should be.

    Here is my analysis of the trace file;svchost.exe (2992) process is using 12 % of the CPU. The process call stack shows functions calls from BFE.DLL module !

    BFE stand for Base Filtering Engine Service. it's a service that controls the operation of the Windows Filtering Platform (WFP). WFP is a network traffic processing platform that allows software to “hook” into Windows networking stack and perform such functions as firewall, traffic shaping, filtering, etc.

    The svchost is doing this job for another process who called it. for that I'll use the CPU precise graph to see which process redied the most our svchost process. this process is probably at the origine of this CPU activity !

    You can see that the vsserv.exe process (Bitdefender) makes the svchost process ready to run 2789 times.

    To be sure it's Bitdefender the culprit, do the following;
    1. disable the Bitdefender firewall and see if the cpu activity decrease;
    2. If not; disable all bitdefender application and see if it helps;

    If you confirme it's Bitdefender, then you can update to a newer version. Otherwise, unistall it and re-install it again ...

    Edit: Didn't realize that this post was old . May be it will help others having the same issue.
