disabling Windows Search will solve that problem, but do not recommend removing it!
Amazingly, I rarely use indexed document search, it's kind of overkill so I whacked it.
Will dig deeper into svchost tomorrow, you can just sit and watch the resource monitor and see it keep adding bytes to it's size like the pennies accumulating on a mega jackpot machine in Vegas.
It's definitely the source of my problems, was just hoping someone knew some that happened with a recent update or something so I didn't have to dig so deep.
