I also see this problem with Speccy. I am NOT a techie, so please don't fire me any high tech questions. I did however gather some info. Have no idea if it is helpful or not: Task Manager display right after starting Speccy: After 2 or 3 minutes: I also noticed high activity in one svchost.exe task. Process Explorer showed these threads with high activity: These are the services that svchost task is running: Hope this was helpful.
