    My GF's computer crashed and I couldn't save it.I used the restore feature to return it back to factory new.Once I did this,I uninstalled all the crapware,installed all the updates(including SP1),and installed all my anti herpees programs.When I try to do anything on the computer,one of the process maxes out the memory.How do I fix this?I can't do anything on the computer.It just locks up and is completely useless.

    The svchost, assuming it's not some malicious program under disguise, is just a system service linking a dynamic library. Something else on your system is generating that memory load.

    Does it happen right after boot? Can your narrow it down to some specific program/progress?


    Alternatively, use MS official install media to do a fresh install.

    I have tried everything here,except a reinstall using the MS link for downloading and reinstalling 7.I have an OEM version of 7 that isn't supported by MS.My key code doesn't jive, when I try to download 7 through MS.I can't get it through Acer, as they direct me back to MS.I'll try for another week before installing Linux.

    Have you tried to activate by calling MS?

    No.I didn't think I need to because it's a reinstall.

    I meant when you use a downloaded ISO from MS.

    Sounds more like the O/S you downloaded doesn't match the OEM key. Goes like this you got OEM Home installed and you downloaded Win 7 Pro and the Product Key will not work. Product keys match only the O/S OEM version they came with not what you want to match. If you aren't verifying this then could be another problem.
    The ISO must match your Factory OEM O/S installed as well you don't get to download a different version that doesn't match your OEM Product Key.

    When I go to MS to download Win 7 Home Premium 64 ,it asks for my product key.When I enter it,it won't accept the key.It states on the page that some OEM keys will not work to download.




    Here is a pic of all the process that are running under the svchost.exe that is maxing out my memory and keeping my cpu running at 50%+.

    The offending process are highlighted in blue.
