Hello everyone, I have a question regarding the svchost.exe windows file that runs in the background. Besides having 2 of them running at once, which i have read is normal, one of the svchost.exe files constantly runs at around 140,000-170,000k of memory. Even when my computer is just turned on or has been sitting with nothing running. Is this normal? I dont have any excess programs running besides my creative sound panel, logitech g series keyboard profiler, saitek x-52 profile manager, and logitech gamepanel manager. It's beyond me why svchost.exe would take up more memory than a lot of the programs I run. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

svchost.exe has several instances running at the same time but it should not use that much of memory.Post the services that are running under it.Right click on that>properties>Services Tab
