Double clicking on it does not show me anything… (Using XP home edition) April 29, 2009 Carlo Process Explorer is a very powerful tool to know how svchost works. Find the General tab and check if the start-up type is set to Automatic.
I restarted and quickly installed KB3102810. Finally, this quickness allowed KB947821 to be installed. Can't stop laughing at Microsoft's "Install this update to fix updates" mentality. THANKS GOD BLESS June 14, 2008 abby Thanks for the info!

I lost the ability to windows update which is a big worry. Click on OK to terminate the application. You have put it clearly in terms that almost anyone can understand and use. January 14, 2009 Charge Right on!
Right-click on the high usage svchost.exe process and select Go to Service(s)." Found the culprit…it was a constant Windows Update.
