You will need to view which services are running in svchost.exe

Click Start on your taskbar, and then click Run.
In the search box, type CMD, and then press ENTER.
Next, type: tasklist /svc
Press ENTER.
You will then see a list of processes that are running and which are active.
If you want to learn more about a particular process, type exactly as seen:

Tasklist /FI "PID eq processID"

That will help you narrow down the process taking up so many CPU cycles
(could be malware among other things)

Run a Clean Boot procedure (2 pages) to isolate a possible culprit among your Startup applications and Services.

If you haven't been able to isolate a non-Microsoft application as the cause, you might want to suspect Microsoft services.

Some members have experienced a similar issue with a Svchost.exe process after running certain Windows updates. After some investigation, they have narrowed it down to Automatic Updates, which is a service managed by one of your svchost.exe processes.

To test this, click Start > Run > type services.msc

Click OK.

Locate the Automatic Updates service. Stop and Disable it.

That's normal for System Idle Process to be at or near 100%.

As another test, click Start > Run > type wuaucpl.cpl

Click OK.

Change Automatic Updates to Notify be but don't automatically download or install them.

Go back to the Automatic Updates service. Start and set it to Automatic.

Look at CPU usage again.

Still seems ok nothing but system idle process at 99% which is like it should be. No slowdown or nothing at the time so yeah think it is ok for now thank you. I'll run a virus scan to be sure make sure it wasn't some else or i picked up something. But I think it is ok for now.
