I have a Dell PC with 4 GB Ram, Dual core processor running in Windows 7 Ultimate...
For past 3 months, my pc is very slow and I am unable to do anything. When I checked the task manager I found a program svchost.exe consuming nearly 3.5 GB of Ram but CPU usage is only 2%. Only 2 to 3 MB of RAM is only free.

Please suggest a way to solve this issue

".....While it’s possible that a virus has replaced the real Service Host with an executable of its own, it’s very unlikely. If you’d like to be sure, you can check out the underlying file location of the process. In Task Manager, right-click any Service Host process and choose the “Open File Location” option...."

I had, quite a tough time troubleshooting many Pcs (Xp , Windows 7) to get rid of such Virus.
@Ashok L bro you should try to check your autostart entries

Thanks Bapun and Zmint bro. I will try this tomorrow. I think it might be a virus.
