svchost.exe High CPU Usage Fix?


  • Ive noticed recently that my computer has been preforming slower than it should be, ever since I've owned it the CPU usage has been high, i never thought anything of it until i realized that its should be around 70% when not doing much. So i started to look what was using my CPU up. It turns out to be a svchost.exe. The services that it provides are DCOM Launch, Plug and Play and Power. When i disable them my CPU usage is low at around 3-5%. But when i disable the Windows shuts down because they need to be running. Is there anyway to fix this issue, it is really slowing down the performance of what should be a fast PC.

    PC Specs (if needed)

    CPU- AMD FX4100 3.6Ghz
    GPU- Geforce GTX 760 (Asus)
    RAM- 8GB
    PSU- 730W atx power supply
    Asus Motherboard M5A78L-M LX
    1 Terabyte  Hard Drive

    Image of the services

    Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
