    svchost.exe (netsvcs) consoming network data

    I've been suffering from this issue for days now and I don't know what to do. My network monitor shows a fine internet speed but I can't seem to load any web page. I opened Resource Monitor and there I see this process with ID 1056 eating up 90% of my internet speed! I tried to search for the issue online and everyone is talking about BITS service that I have already disabled for years now. I managed to get the list of services that this process holds and please take a look.

    Hi ejmtv. Welcome to the TenForums @ejmtv

    What browser are you using? Have you tried an alternate?

    I would power cycle router just because. I would then reset Network in Windows 10.

    Start=> Settings => Network and Internet => scroll down right hand side => at bottom Reset Network. This process will "Forget" all wireless passwords.

    I would then enter these four commands at a Command Prompt(admin). In the commnads don't key in info in brackets, there for you to read.

    ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
    nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
    netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
    netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)

    Reboot device and test.

    Probably Windows trying to update to CU, you should update manually, unless you have a reason avoiding it.
