The First Question Of Troubleshooting: what changed between the time things
worked and the time they didn't?

The Second Question of Windows Troubleshooting: what is the malware/virus
status of the machine? If you think it is clean, what programs (and
versions) did you use to determine this?

Be sure the computer is clean:

Process Explorer (free) can possibly tell you what is using Svchost.

I'm seeing a very similar thing. Right now, svchost is taking 1.2GIG of
memory. I'm running process explorer, so, I know which services this
instance is responsible for. I've gone through the services @ black
viper and disabled the ones that could be, but, memory usage remains
high. While googling, I see a lot of people complaining about high
memory usage, but, there are no answers.
