  1. Svchost.exe in sysWOW64 hogging CPU


    I have a windows 10 PC(64-bit). Since the last few days i'm noticing that my PC is running slowly than it should. On opening the task manager i saw that there is an unnamed background process which is utilizing the CPU even when i'm not running any program. I opened up the file location and found it to be in C:/WINDOWS/sysWOW64/svchost.exe. It would be really great if any help could be provided as i have to run heavy softwares and this problem is making it difficult to run them.

    :)

  2. Malware using SysWOW64/svchost

    I've done a lot of research, but haven't yet found a current solution to this.

    I have Norton 360 protection, and when I block the svchost from running, all malware symptoms stop, yet blocking that creates new problems.

    -The main symptom is an unnamed file running in Task Manager taking up 50-60% cpu, and clicking "open file location" takes you to SysWOW64/svchost.

    -When on google chrome, a bunch of websites try to pop up or connect, but Norton blocks all of them. The most frequent one called "Bitcoin Miner6"

    -About 20 "proxychecker"s were in the TM, which I blocked with Norton without bad side-effects.

    -Blue Screen of deaths were often early on, about 15 mins and every time I tried restarting my computer.

    All these were stopped by Norton, though the main file can be still found in TM, but it uses hardly any cpu. It seems to need internet connection to work (when I don't have Norton block it), and is run by SysWOW64 about 30sec after startup, possibly as a
    dll.

    Anyway Norton can't find it no matter what, and running my computer without svchost is annoying.

    My CPU usage reaches 98% when I don't move my cursor for few minutes

    Looks like it might be the svchost process.

    This is not uncommon.

    Below is a link on steps to fix this issue.

    Let me know how you make out.
