So I'm trying to figure out why this fresh install of W7Pro is operating so slowly. The following SVCHOST is using 1.7GB of RAM and 25% CPU. I realized that I forgot to pop in the product key and activate Windows so I just did that and am rebooting. I'd love to know if you have any suggestions on what else to look at.

svchost.exe 920 AeLookupSvc, Appinfo, BITS, Browser,

CertPropSvc, EapHost, gpsvc, iphlpsvc,

LanmanServer, MMCSS, ProfSvc, Schedule,

SENS, SessionEnv, ShellHWDetection, Themes,

Winmgmt, wuauserv
