Internet Sharing/Internet Firewall Service causing Major CPU usage
Posted on 2003-11-28
I have 2 computer running XP Pro hooked up with a plain hub and network cables.
one of them has dial up internet which I share with my other computer.
about a month ago I noticed that the computer with the internet connection was REALLY slow, turns out SVCHost was using upwards of 90% of the CPU usage, after much frustration I discovered that by turning off the internet sharing/internet firewall service the SVChost stops eating up all the CPU usage...
So now my computer is running fine but I no longer got internet sharing, I tried redoing the whole setup to do a home network but SVCHost will use 90% of the cpu usage whenever internet sharing/internet firewall service is enabled.
I'm thinking that the files may be corrupted and some how causing this problem, can anyone let me know what files I need to replace for this service?
What lse I should check with this issue?
Or anyone else come across this issue??
I really need to get the internet sharing back up and going between the 2 computers.
