    Over the past few weeks my laptop has been freezing/crashing almost every morning about 10-30 min after startup.
    It will become extremely lagged and eventually just freeze, and on occasion I have gotten what I think is "the blue screen"
    I believe I have traced the problem to an svchost.exe process that can exceed 500,000 K memory usage!
    The problem only seems to occur once a day when I start up the laptop in the morning
    Ive searched various forums and tried a few things but im still left with the problem.
    Basically, its starts at about 60,000 K and then will make a jump to about 250,000 K and then a few minutes later it will start to slowly climb to the 400,000-500,000 K range.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
