    You could try disabling all services that are not required to boot up your pc.

    You don't, pretty much all of them are required to be running.
    It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready.
    I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything.
    There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now.
    And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.

    Well from the look of it nothing is wrong with them, altho I understand your frustration them.

    Here are some of mine.



    I believe I have a memory leak which is a term for a certain process constantly gaining memory,
    I've had them go up to 1,000,000 K memory. so like you I decided I can probably end something.
    Svchost runs services, some services are more important then others, some can make your computer
    shut down. You can check your services to see which ones are running on which ever svchost and
    google to see how important it is, then stop that service without ending the svchost.

    Here is what mine look like with a couple of services stopped.


    (obviously not all of my svchost but they are all lower then this one)

    I don't recommend you going and ending random services, always do your research. For me, doing this gives my
    computer a real boost in performance while gaming on anything. But like I said your svchost seem fine you
    can try to end some things but it probably wont give you that much of a boost. Try stopping some services like Themes, etc.
    If you don't know what it is google it.

    svchost is for services that are running, so it's required. They even run a single service or multiple services per process. You can disable some un-needed services but I'm unsure if that'll decrease the memory usage.

    There are some services (windows defender) that are useless and will take a noticeable amount of memory away.

    Then disable those services.

    Start > Run > services.msc.

    Or

    Windows key + R > services.msc.

    Don't ever attempt to force close the processes, terminating the process is pretty much like trying to delete system32 folder from your PC.
    The only thing you could do is just upgrade your RAM, I remember on my older PC with 4 GB RAM - svchost used to eat 1.5 GB of my RAM.

    Pretty sure if you remove all the maps made with radiant (skillmaps and such) that the amount of leaked memory would be a lot lower.
