Hi,

For a couple of months now I've been experiencing high CPU usage (around 30%-50%) and I can't tell why.
I've run a full antivirus (avast) scan and it turned nothing.. also, I had a malware check (Malwarebytes) and although it turned a hundred or so results, even after I quarantined them the cpu usage still persists. All I can tell is that svchost.exe (netsvcs) is the biggest cpu user, according to the windows Resource Monitor.
Anyone has any idea how to solve it? It eats up my battery and makes a lot of noise!

thanks!
