Ah, now the fun begins...

What that establishes is that you're simply overtaxing the cpu with all the stuff running...to reload everything all at once might give you the same result so it's a matter of enabling them a few at a time...

I'd pick the ones you really really need like antivirus and any added equipment or software that is critical...you can leave the rest unchecked without harming anything...they just load slower when you try to run the program...but AV and firewalls are important...

Svchost can be any number of things. Usually it is just idle processes running in the background to make windows run. i've noticed that like yours, sometimes they can go a little crazy. I kill them if they break 50,000 K. Doing so doesn't hurt anything, if one of them was actually doing something important windows will restart the process and you will see your cpu and memory usage drop pretty significantly.
Ooops...didn't realize that later versions actually allow the services to be shown...is that how you shut them down in Vista/7 et al?

sorry about the typo..

with everything i've read on the issue, that's never came up. that's crazy. hopefully people might run across this article when they have this issue.

No problem...I think you reped me last week or two...lol

I used to do tech support and that msconfig was a huge boon when I figured it out...but I see you're running a newer version of windows with a services tab...you might be able to kill the process like CHKNFKR suggested in that tab...but I've never played with it so I don't have a clue...

ToolbarUpdaterService.exe seems off to me. You have malware and other shit going on (edit: Google ToolbarUpdaterService.exe). It can get complicated, I would start with a Malwarebytes scan, and scan with Spybot. Once you remove some of it, restart, and do it over again. If it's preventing either of those programs from running, you will need to try safe mode. If it still fails in safe mode, then you have to do some registry digging, but you have to know what you're looking for (Winlogon - I have seen userinit hijacked to run a virus, then run the actual userinit.exe to log you in normally, why it bypassed safe mode). There are some that also hijack how the operating system is set up to run exe files (it will run a virus, then the application, bypasses safe mode also).

Svchost.exe is eating a bunch of memory, but it's a service that's being manipulated poorly at best. They're not freeing something which is causing a memory leak.

Run netstat -a -b at command prompt, you can narrow down connections that are currently open that seem suspicious to make sure that you're not leaking data and information to a third party. Start without touching the internet so that any connections kept alive aren't making the list bigger than what it needs to be.
