    There was nothing until yesterday when I turned on my Windows 10 PC and noticed it was run slower than normal. I launched up Task Manager and figured out that one svchost.exe process (in many others) is using a lot of my CPU, around 40% and seems stuck at that amount.

    I've tried to restart the computer, but after turning on, the problem comes up again.

    What do I suppose to do now?

    svchost is associated with your network adapter & yes there is a few of them in the task manager list.It could be anything,your best bet is web search & then execute the solution that best describes your problem,its how i managed to solve mine a few months back.You could also check for an update from microsoft for a fix,as i seem to recall there was an issue not so long ago

    have a look at this
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2855055/svchost-exe-high-cpu-usage.html


    wording to use in browser for starters
    svchost.exe using excessive cpu in win 10
    svchost.exe using 40 cpu in win 10


    i am on win 7 at the mo regardless it shows no cpu usage for svchost even when running a torrent,tho the torrent is currently uploading for the time being,i would expect win 10 to show very little cpu usage if i booted to it

    I did several searches, found a few guides, including a video on YouTube.

    It seems there was a problem with the Windows 10 build 1067 because after taking this update, the issue appears. Followed the instructions and rollback the update, everything is fine now.

    The thing is that I want to try 1067 and see what's new. However, I have to wait for the next update and hope it won't conflict with my computer.
