  1. I have a beef with Windows 7. On occasions I start up my laptop to find very slow performance. I then come to find that svchost.exe is hogging 80%+ of my CPU. Now, I'm using a 10 year old laptop with a Pentium M 2.13GHz, but... Windows 7 does perform well on this hardware when the CPU is fully available (especially since I have an SSD). Killing svchost in Task Manager results in greatly reduced CPU usage, strange behaviour, and the process only starts itself again. The solution to this CPU hogging at the moment is to just wait until it subsides. Of course, I have no idea when that will happen... Any suggestions?
