Occasionally after windows automatically updates, my laptop will restart with abnormally high CPU usage. I checked my processes and found that "svchost.exe*32 - SYSTEM - winrscmde" appeared to be using most of the CPU.
When attempting to "Go to Service(s)" no service was highlighted.
As a last ditch effort in a long list of fixes I tried(including scanning my pc with multiple malware and virus detection programs, restarting the computer again and trying a manual fix I found in a forum somewhere else)
I simply chose svchost.exe*32, then clicked "Open file location" and double clicked the svchost application, opening a new svchost.exe*32 and
ending the old process and it seems to have solved my problem for the time being, but I can't help but wonder what caused this problem in the
[EDIT]: I fixed my problem another way, apparently somehow a rootkit was causing the problem?
It started out as a problem with all regular google sites, ads and services not being able to be displayed on my browser.
I searched the web for answers and found that someone else had the exact same problem and used a combination of Rkill and TDSKill executable programs to stop malware processes and remove rootkits. I never thought of this before because i had no idea what a rootkit was.
After rebooting google worked fine and i found that the particular service host.exe file that had been causing me so much trouble was gone and not running, also my computer runs smoother than ever!
