    Yeah - 733k for a svchost is high; possibly due to a memory leak.

    Need to find out what system services are in that svchost

    Write down PID.

    Bring up an Admin CMD prompt; paste -
    Code:
    [size=2]tasklist /fi "imagename eq svchost.exe" /svc >c:\0 & start notepad c:\0[/size] 
    A Notepad will open with the results.

    Result:
    Code:
    [size=2]
    Image Name                     PID Services

    Also use Process Explorer from SysInternals/Microsoft TechNet - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653

    Hover mouse over the svchost in question.
