Svchost.exe Problem....

    I've got a problem with Vista's Svchost.exe. I don't know why, but is
    seems to have started after I installed Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
    2 single player demo. I noticed that after the computer booted and the
    boot itself was pretty fast until the desktop comes up and then it slows
    down a bit. It acts if I was defragging or something. I can still run
    everything, but it's slowed down about 30% at least. Then I uninstalled
    GRAW2 SP Demo, with some didn't want to uninstall, but I
    finally got it. Anyway, I still have this problem with Svchost.exe.

    The particular Scvhost process seems to be linked to these services
    which all have the same PID which is 908. They are wudfsvc- Windows
    Driver Foundation, WPDBusEnum- Portable Device Enumerator Service,
    WdiSystemHost- DiagnosticSystemHost, UxSms- Desktop Window Manager
    Session Manager, TrkWks- Distributed Link Tracking Client,
    TabletInputService- Tablet PC Input Service, SysMain- Superfetch,
    PcaSvc- Program Compatibility Assistant Service, Netman- Network
    Connections, hidserv- Human Interface Device Access, and finally
    EMDMgmt- ReadyBoost.

    Now this lasts for about 15 minutes after I first boot...the slowdown
    that is. I know I don't need stuff like the TablettInputService because
    I don't have a Tablet PC and I would think I could also stop the
    ReadyBoost service because I don't have any USB keys to utilize
    Readyboost....that is USB keys that I use for that anyway.

    I don't know for certain that it is the Svchost.exe process, but when I
    look in Task Mananger, I see 97% free or so and I see Svchost.exe
    utilizing between 1 to 3%. The worst thing is my hard drive light keeps
    flashing busy for all this time and I have two hard drives with two
    partitions with 31GB out of 115GB free on my C: drive, 107GB free out of
    117GB on my D: partition and 449GB free out of 465GB on my E: drive. I
    know C: is a bit cramped but I'm not installing anything on it anymore.

    Oh, I have one other problem too. I had just installed Office XP a few
    days ago and I just uninstalled it a while ago to see if for some reason
    that would clear up the slowdown and the HD activity after booting and
    now when I go to d/l a file, Office XP comes up wanting me to put the
    install disc in. Any idea on how to get rid of that perhaps?

    System Specs:
    Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.83GHz / Asus P5B-E mobo / 4GB of Corsair (4x1GB)
    PC5400 DDR-2 XMS RAM / GeForce 8800 GTX (580/925) / SB X-Fi XtremeGamer
    Fatal1ty Pro / Segate 250GB SATA / WD 500GB SATA / Lite-On SOHW-1693
    Burner / Corsair HX-620 PSU / Vista HP x64

    Come on guys....doesn't anyone have any ideas? From the Vista Forums
    someone else seems to think it's Office XP too. I think it has to d
    with some dll or some com files like MilesAhead suggested from the othe
    forum. Anyone else have an ideas about that? Here's the link and it'
    the 2nd one from the bottom. 'Why does it run and run and run an
    run... - Windows Vista Forums

    Well, I reformatted and reinstalled Vista and it's still doing it,
    albeit faster. I'm not sure if Office XP was the culprit or not or if I
    just suddenly noticed that Svchost was working and Superfetch was taking
    this time to scan everything everytime I boot the computer....sigh.

    I am having a very similar problem with my machine. I experience th
    same problem only it happens when using Adobe products, Autodes
    Products, watching video, and most recently playing Dragon Age: Origins
    I spent the better part of the morning on the phone with Alienware'
    Tech support, only to find out what I already knew. All the hardware o
    my machine is working properly. I have trolled so many forums I can'
    remember them all anymore. If anyone has any ideas please help
    P.S. I too have reformatted (twice actually) as this has been a
    ongoing problem for about two months
