Since i last booted up my pc it has not been running very well. I opened task manager and looked in my processes and found a process called svchost.exe i have not seen it before, it is using up lots of memory. In the past when only running small programs like explorer my cpu usage is aprox 10% and below it is now averaging 60% and above.
I recently installed a game called wolfenstein. would this effect my computer speeds when not open. I am worried that this svchost.exe is malicious, if so if i go End task could that damage the running of my pc.
I would be gratefull for any help.
