these two processes just eat up the little RAM i have on my computer. they just keep growing and growing and growing until my computer basically lags and stalls. especially the svchost.exe process. but sometimes both.

i recently had some malware taken care of on my computer over at the safer networking forum. and after a week of doing this and that, ive been told my logs and computer is clean.

i dunno what do to or make of it. and it was definitely not something this computer had troubles with before i got infected.

comodo firewall has blocked 38 intrusion attempts. all of them svchost. when i booted up my computer today, a pop up warning came up about it being a safe process but that it was trying to connect via another computer. so i hit block.
