I often hear my hard drive working overtime. On entering the Windows Task Manager I find that "svchost.exe" in user name "System" is using 97% of the CPU and slowing everything down.
What is the explanation and can the problem be overcome?

Check your anti virus is up to date and run a scan. Some viruses hide themselves as svchost and its better to be safe than sorry.
