Hey
svchost.exe is normal system process , but if it is spelled like scvhost.exe
or something similar you should run an antivirus.
And there is usually more than 5 svchost.exe processes

how much is it using up your bandwith anyway?

i wouldnt worry unless it gets into 100kb/s+ and even then its probably just a program updating itself ususally the antivirus,
i know for a fact maccaffe slows my stepdads computer down to a crawl when it updates (plus internet)

Guyz, i got a fix for this problem from another guy.

It will be fixed by hust removing qmgr.dll from system32 folder. qmgr.dll is a module associated withBackground

Intelligence Transfer Service. Even if windows update is turned off, its found to be downloading something. Maybe

a program created by microsoft to check the OS running is genuine.

For deleting or renaming that file which gets it out of service, follow these simple steps in an administrator

account. Thats necessary because we need admin privileges for changin system files :-

- For deleting or renaming, we should own that file. CMD's TAKEOWN command helps us to do so.
- open up cmd with admin privileges, then type these in it :

takeown /f C:\Windows\System32\qmgr.dll
(note : it will only work if cmd is ran as administrator)

- one more thing is to be done before doing so, that is to gain full control or rights over the file :
- in cmd having admin privileges, type these -
cacls C:\Windows\System32\qmgr.dll /G FAAZ:F

here, there is one thing to note, i have given 'FAAZ:F' above, that FAAZ is to be replaced with your

account's name. Mine being FAAZ, i have given that.

- Now, you should be able to rename or delete the file. Just make a backup in case if you want to update in

future.

-> if the problem still persist, delete wuaueng.dll from the same folder with the same method given above.
there will be no need for this. Deleting qmgr.dll will be mostly enough.

hi hotboyz,

these commands are to be done in the command prompt
which could be opened in the following manner, remember, elevation is necesary :

- Start > type "cmd" > either command prompt or cmd will be shown > right click > run as administrator > Click YES

yep that will do. Now type in the commands abv ^^

go to network activity in resource monitor, if you find the ip which svchost.exe (netsvcs) using is 74.125.169.20 then its definitely Google update. I experienced this problem earlier then I deleted google chrome from my computer after that svchost.exe (netsvcs) not coming in my network activity.. Please try it.

Ok sorry guys, I had a problem with (netsvcs) but also with

"svchost (networkservice)"

which - freeze internet (impossible to connect)
- freeze services.exe (which freeze explorer.exe)
or - jump CPU maximal frequency to 120% (not everytime) (if it's just this I just stop the process, then maximal frequency falls down and CPU use jumps to 100%, 10 seconds later another svchost replace the old one)

I don't know how much time I would need to make it stop, but if I have this problem I must do it everytime time internet freezes to keep using it (also for some games, and sometimes explorer, when there's many things to load)

In the two firsts cases : "- freeze internet (impossible to connect)
- freeze services.exe (which freeze explorer.exe)"

Stopping the process is useless, because everyone is waiting for svchost.exe (networkservice) and if I stop it no other svchost will replace this one, and process will wait for services.exe which I can't stop (will close the computer), so at this moment I'm blocked because my Computer completely freezes.

(sorry for my english)

I hope you could help, never found any answers on french websites and forums and also some ENG, DE forums.

Thx Hope you will find the solution for many users, I'll share it if it works ^^

They have not "infected" your computer. You have delete the DLL file required by the windows Background Intelligent Transfer Service. People in this thread told you how to disable the service, you could also have change the service's start up option to stop it starting again. However, you followed bad advice and delete the dll file from system32.

Heres some advice, never mess around in the system32 folder if you don't know what you are doing. If your antivirus is saying that qmgr.dll is a virus them I'm guessing you downloaded the dll from somewhere on the web after you deleted it and tried to replace it yourself?

Do you have a restore point that you can restore to from before you deleted this file?

Hello,

I have done the above and each time I restart the computer it reactivates the BITS. I show it unchecked and also disabled, but it starts it anyway after a couple minutes and then eats up all memory and freezes everything. Any Ideas?

I had the same problem since yesterday. I had a fake "svchost.exe" in my temporary files, it turned out to be a IDP-program/virus. It's a program that allows hackers to gather personal information or remotely acces your computer without your consent. More info: http://www.avgthreatlabs.com/nl-nl/virus-and-malware-in...

So I solved my problem by deleting the fake "svchost.exe". So check if your "svchost.exe" really is located in "C:/Windows/System32/svchost.exe" and not in an other place (mine was in "C:/Windows/Temp/svchost.exe"). You can check the source of the file by right-clicking on the process in taskmanager and clicking on the source file location.

i had this same problem...but i did some steps that lowered or maybe took down svchost from downloading too much thing and slowing up my internet: (u should download du meter to keep track of how much bandwith is getting used)
1.the easiest solution(which dint really worked for me tho :/ ) is to go to cntrl panel>search' administaritve'>click administrative tools>services>background intelligence (BITS)>stop

2.it might be a virus..some virus name themselves svchost to infect pc pretending they r simple windows svchost.download malewarebytes and scan...if it detects svchost it might be a virus svchost...remove it

3.turn off windows update.if it dosent work than go to services like step 1 and select windows update>stop

4. if u need to get deep than download netbalancer and check which processes r using bandwith including svchost...set their priority to low or block ( If svchost is really using internet for ur windows own sake or it really is important than blocking or lowering svchost might also block ur network...if so dont panic cos u cant surf the net..just turn it back to normal from netbalancer itself)

5. (this method worked the best for me cz i was sharing internet with my phone by reverse tethering) if ur network is being shared turn it off for best security...and if u detect any unnecesarry program on netbalancer which is not system or svchost than also u can use firewall to block them.

6. reinstall windows to a pre updated better version like 8 or 8.1 final........i know bro...windows 7 is a pain cz its old and letting things download itself..im gonna reinstall 8.1 after few days myself too cz i only installed 7 cz i formated previous win 8.1

hope any of them helps u get ur bandwith normal :) 

P.S im also from Bangladesh :)

WARNING: If you have set Windows Update to perform automatic updates, DO NOT use this procedure!

I had the same problem. Using Process Explorer from Sysinternals (www.sysinternals.com), I found that Windows Update (wuauserv) was using more than 45% of the CPU. This is new. I assume that Microsoft is downloading something for Windows 10.

To keep Windows Update from executing:
1. Using Services running as Administrator, locate Windows Update in the list of services. (To run Services as an administrator: click Start; in the Search Programs and Files search textbox enter "services"; in the results right click on Services (icon is a gear) and choose Run as Administrator; log into the administrator account)
2. Right click on the Windows Update list item and click on Properties (at the bottom). The Windows Update Properties windows appears. To be sure that you are in the right place, make sure that the Service name is "wuauserv" and that the Display name is "Windows Update".
3. In the Windows Update Properties window, click on Stop. After a few moments, the Service status should become "Stopped".
4. When the service is stopped, set the Startup type to Disabled.

Hope that helps.
