svchost.exe is often used by malware. It might be worth carrying out a virus/malware check and posting a Hijackthis log in the HJT forum. Click on this link and follow all the steps. Our analysts will then check to see if you have anything that shouldn't be there.
there could be a few reasons why svchost.exe is using up all your resources with the most obvious being some kind of malware so I strongly suggest that you take the time to read through this thread as it advises on the steps to take before posting a Hijack This log file here.
Hopefully our security analysts will be able to give you the all clear so we can then concentrate on other possible causes but if they do find an infection of some kind, they will assist you from start to finish to get your system clean.
