    SVCHOST.EXE - Network Service (Windows XP Home SP1)

    Whenever I boot my PC, and log-in, the PC's performance really drops. In Task Manager - Processes SVCHOST.EXE will be ruuning at 97%. I end SVCHOST.EXE Network Service process and the PC runs soothly. I have run Nortin anti-vurus, Adware and Spycop to see if some scumware or other program is present and using all the PC resoruces. Nothing ws detected. I also use Zone Alarm and it has not identified any program trying to connect to the web. Does anyone have any ideas as to why SVCHOST.EXE Network Services would be running at 97% whe I boot the PC. Thanks!

    Minor detail - the "tasklist" command is available only on pro. <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15>
