svchost.exe 99% CPU

svchost.exe is at 97-99% constantly and after re-starting it is at 100 000K of memory usage after 10 minutes.
It has been high in the past , but closing and re-starting solved the problem.... not this time ?

    Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware Scans are encourage. (I like Microsoft Security Essentials, Spybot 2)

    Also download ProcessExplorer (from Sysinternals) and be more specific. svchost.exe (Service Host) is a process that can encompass any and all background service activity.

    Always update your computer. (Windows Update)
