RAM Issues at idle - svchost.exe infected? Tags: RAM Svchost.Exe Windows 7 Last response: June 6, 2010 5:57 PM in Windows 7 Share Derekkk June 5, 2010 7:02:21 AM I currently have 6GB of RAM. Whenever I restart my computer and have it sit idle with my normal background apps there will 20% RAM usage or lower. Recently however after using a program such Google Chrome or Sony Vegas the RAM usage will spike to about 50% at idle. After closing out of those programs that's when it will spike up that high. svchost.exe is using all of this, and many instances of it. I know that those usually are running all the time, but shouldn't be using a ton of RAM at idle like this and "randomly" using that much. It must be infected with malware or something although I've already done numerous scans with Norton, Malware-bytes, and Avira and it doesn't fix it. Please help!
