Svchost.exe using 100% CPU at startup

Recently my fujitsu S2110 laptop with AMD Turion64 has been experiencing svchost.exe using 100% CPU at startup. This lasts for 8-10 minutes every time i start up my computer, slowing down all processes and usage. After the 8-10 minutes, the system returns to normal, but those first several minutes the computer is non-responsive. All hardware is factory stock and virus program is Symantec. The desktop is clean with only shortcuts. The temp internet files is emptied every 2-3 days. This problem also is happening on my friends Dell PP19L XPS-M14 laptop, and usually lasts about 10 minutes during startup. The virus scan program on the Dell is PC-illin. Can anyone help?

Sorry my Fujitsu will not run on high speed.

Is this a laptop or a scanner? If a laptop check that you have other processes running on your system that potentially slow down the PC. Check the processes for high CPU and either stop those processes, or cancel unwanted startup processes in your MSconfig.exe program, assuming you are running windows OS.

Check the link for Fujitsu support:

I am not really sure if this caused by the fan performance, but I can confirm that my laptop dell inspiron 1420 is very hot after running about 1 hours.. and often my CPU usage reach 100% when I use Vista...

First, I appreciate the details provided in your question. Thanks!
The specification of your laptop are fine and enough to run and support Vista. It is true that greater number of processes and CPU usage causes, but normally the machine can handle it well if it gets proper ventilation.
Laptop heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked properly. Another cause of overheating is the dust present inside the laptop, which clogs the fan and heatsink. I suggest that you should get you laptop checked by a professional for servicing (if required). I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it Helps! Let me know if i could be of any further assistance.

I have a fujitsu amilo Li 1718 and i cant turn on the wireless conections.

"Fn" + "F2". to switch on wireless

Other solutions are:

The way i get around it is to Hibernate my laptop instead of shutting it down. This makes for a faster startup, saves all your open apps, and ,of course, keeps the wifi enabled.


Here is the solution for starting wireless on startup :

go START > run > notepad ENTER

write this in the notepad

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("C:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")

do while WshShell.AppActivate("Wireless Status Option")=False
WScript.Sleep 100

WScript.Sleep 100


and save it as wifi.vbs

put the file wifi.vbs in the startup folder and this will do the job

Hope this helps, good luck

Cpu usage 100%

You have too many programs queued to run at startup. Click "Start" and then "Run". Type in "MSCONFIG" and hit return.

Click the startup tab and this is a listing of all the programs that load at startup. Keep all your firewall and antivirus programs, but you can shut off just about anything else, like Java Updater, Quicktime, iTunes updater, etc. etc.

Toshiba's slowness

The svchost.exe is the executable file that runs the direct link libraries to all the services that are running in the background, so if you know what services you need and don't need you can click on them and stop them from running in task manager, but they will start up again when you restart the pc.
