I had a blog back in 2012, based on (self hosted). It was called Chipset Unplugged but I had to shut it down because it got too many spam comments. One of the most popular posts on it was How to get rid of svchost.exe (netsvcs). The video has more than 80,000 views now For the sake of old times I’m gonna repost it here.
You might have noticed that at times your net is working very slow and even after closing all the applications the router’s LED keeps on blinking! Don’t worry, cause if you’re using Windows Vista, Win 7, Win 8 or Win 8.1, its most likely not a malware!

BITS might be behaving like this because of some bug, but definitely not a malware. I did this for 3-4 days and after that the issue was gone. Now of course I’ve shifted to Linux, so I don’t have this problem.
You might have to repeat this multiple times since BITS tends to restart whenever the network appears to be free.
Because sharing is caring...
