    High CPU usage from network process, sound randomly glitches

    Hi. Recently i've noticed that my CPU usage on idle is around 50% (which is high). I've found a process that is network related called "Service Host: Network Service (5)". It is currently using aaround 25% of my CPU. I can end it, but then it just restarts. Whenever it starts, any music or anything im listening to glitches out on whatever it currently was on and repeats like the current note and it sounds awful. How do i fix the CPU issue with this?

    Try using Process Explorer to see if you can figure out exactly what is causing it. PE gives you a lot more info than Task Manager. It's free and does not get installed, you just run it.

    Hi. So i am using Process Explorer however there is multiple "svchost.exe" processes running (which i can see in task manager). However the one causing the issue is the Network Services one, which i am unable to find in process explorer.

    When you point to each instance of svchost.exe it should show you the processes running under it.

    The only Network Services I have is NvNetworkService.exe.

    Weird, now the process isnt using the same amount of CPU. Could this be caused when i have more tabs open in chrome?

    As a test, try a different browser, Firefox, Opera, PaleMoon, even IE, etc.

    If that makes a significant difference, try completely uninstalling Chrome then download and install the latest available, see if the problem recurs or not.
