well. if you are using windows 2008, you should be able to click resource monitor in performance tab on task manager to see which service or app is cause it

otherwise download the free app from sysinternal... called process monitor and see what is causing the trouble...also are there any errors in the event log about this

Process Explorer for Windows v10.21

Double click the offending file. If it is a svchost.exe, then Select the Services Tab. Please list what services are in that svchost.exe. You can try and stop all the services in that SVCHOST.EXE, and see if CPU Usage drops......

Then Select the Threads tab, and see what .exe or .dll is using the CPU, and then select it by double clicking it....and copying/pasting the call stack here.....

Hi

1.Also download SuperantiSpyware update it and run a complete scan on system drive.

2.plus disable all weird services,uninstall all recent software(specially freewares if any)

3.Download ccleaner and remove some crap from temp file which might be contacting internet

in this case u need an application it can give/cancel permissions to executables remove weird startup entries by using winpatrol

if you can perform all the steps above i can hope positives!
