Ok i think i have an svchost virus.. my computer keeps lagging (folding computer) randomly in all the programs... also, at first a single svchost didn't have a user in the processes pane of taskmanager, so i ended it and it came back.. over and over untill my theme went away (like that bottom bar, and windows went to origional windows), and then it came back but ALL my proceses showed up with no user..<br><br>
whats going on here?

Errr I have 8 different svchost's up with no user name, however no lag. Maybe it's normal to have multiple ones up at once.<br><br>
Edit for idea: Only time they've used up alot of resources is when I have speedfan up for a while, then they hog it up and I have to restart to do anything, so are you running speedfan? I know I've had problems with running it more then 10min.

Install the nod32 trial and if that doesn't pick up anything then nothing is wrong <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><a href="http://www.eset.com" target="_blank">www.eset.com</a>

svchost is a windows service host....windows needs them to run correctly...<br><br>
If you are hazzarding a guess when you stop processes etc. on your machine then I would suggest you dont play in there......do a bit of reading first.<br><br>
There are antivirus programs out there that are designed to find actual viruses....if your machine is laggy then I would suggest.<br><ul><li>Antivirus scan</li>
<li>Spyware/Malware scan</li>
<li>Check your available HDD space and clear up some room</li>
<li>Try uninstalling some unused programs</li>
<li>Run Advanced Windows Care or TweakNow reg cleaner to organise your registry for you.</li>
</ul>
