Question SVCHOST.EXE Using up all Resources
There is a process called svchost.exe using up almost 100% of my resources and making the computer almost useless. What is causing this or how do I find out what is causing this problem? I am running Windows 2000 Pro.

When did this begin? Have you added hardware , installed programs or updates just prior?

This is hard to troublehsoot in Win2K due to the lack of a System Configuration utility, but you could install the XP version of msconfig.

Does the problem occur in Safe Mode or under a different User Profile?

Go to Start > Run, enter cmd and then copy/paste the following command into the command window:

cd %userprofile%\desktop
tlist /svc /fi "imagename eq svchost.exe" >> taskservlist.txt


That should create a text file on your desktop. Copy/paste that here.

You might want to try installing msconfig to assist in troubleshooting:

I did get the msconfig and it works OK. I tried to do the start, run and CMD. A DOS window opened. I copied the new text commands and did a right click but it keeps saying error. Do I have to backspace the default directory it opens up?

Do a search for tlist.exe

This is supposed to be the Win2K equivalent of tasklist.exe and I believe, but could be mistaken about it being installed as a default in Win2k Pro, however it may be that you have to get it from the Support Tools directory of the CD.

In any case, it appears you can download it from here:

Wow, that wasn't what I was expecting; I'm not sure if the command executed correctly or it just works differently than the XP version.

That looks more like a process list than what is specifically running under Svchost.

Yet, from the number and obscurity of some of those processes I'm not surprised there is an overload.

Did you manually type or copy/paste that command line? If you left out the quotes, that might explain what you got there.

This is what I'm looking for:

Quote:
Image Name PID Services
========================= ====== =============================================
svchost.exe 708 DcomLaunch, TermService
svchost.exe 800 RpcSs
svchost.exe 836 AudioSrv, CryptSvc, Dhcp, EventSystem,
helpsvc, HidServ, lanmanserver,
lanmanworkstation, Netman, Nla, RasAuto,
RasMan, Schedule, seclogon, SENS,
SharedAccess, ShellHWDetection, srservice,
TapiSrv, Themes, TrkWks, w32time, winmgmt,
wscsvc, wuauserv
svchost.exe 884 Dnscache
svchost.exe 972 Alerter, LmHosts
svchost.exe 1380 stisvc
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
I think Tlist works differently than tasklist, so try this command instead:

cd %userprofile%\desktop
tlist pid >> taskservlist.txt

You may need to enter each line manually and separately.

http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?kbid=890188

Maybe you should post a HijackThis scanlog.

Download and install HijackThis using the "self extractor". Run it and select "do a system scan and save the log file". Then copy/paste the contents of the log to a reply

http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'd like to be able to give you specific suggestions, but if I'm unable to do that you are going to have to try using msconfig to "clean boot" troubleshoot. I believe you should be able to carryout the same procedure in Win2k as you would here in XP:

Run msconfig and select the "Services" tab. Check "Hide Microsoft Services" and then disable the rest. Also uncheck "load startup group" on the general page.

See this link for detailed information:

http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;310353

Now restart and test the issue at hand

If no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.

If the problem didn't occur, check the other half, so all the Services are enabled -- proceed to do this on the startup tab as well.

Get the idea? You want to isolate the problem to a specific startup if possible.

Note: if you already have items unchecked under msconfig > startups and are in “selective” startup mode – you should note what these are before beginning. They will need to be de-selected again.

There are a few things I'd be suspicious of, such as Webroot or your VPN program, ....

Hold on, make the command:

tlist -s

I ran that command in the DOS window and it looks like the other runs. I do not know how to cut and paste from the DOS window.

just substitute here and you should get a text file:

cd %userprofile%\desktop
tlist -s >> taskservlist.txt

You can copy/paste from the cmd window by right clicking and select "mark" then drag the highlight over the text you want to select and then right click -- the text gets copied to the clipboard.
