I am running WinXP Pro and am having very slow and sluggish response times. I looked at the Task Manager and the services eating up most of my CPU Usage was SVCHost.EXE. There are actually five different SVCHost.EXE running. I did a tasklist /svc from DOS and the PID associated with the highest CPU Usage has around 32 services/programs running. Any reason why this service is doing this. The System Idle Process used to be in the 90+% usage, now it's less than 5%.
