scvhost netsvcs high memory usage after f.lux v4 installation



  • Specs : windows 7 sp1 , intel i5-560m with 610m nvidia graphics card
    4go ddr3
    My memory is satured just after installing f.lux, just before install it windows give me a warning that f.lux will change my svchost , some system32 file are missing too now like:
    api-ms-win-crt-convert-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-core-localization-l1-2-0
    api-ms-win-core-processthreads-l1-1-1
    api-ms-win-core-file-l1-2-0
    api-ms-win-core-timezone-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-core-file-l2-1-0
    api-ms-win-core-synch-l1-2-0
    api-ms-win-crt-environment-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-crt-heap-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-crt-math-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-crt-private-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-crt-stdio-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-crt-string-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-crt-utility-l1-1-0

    api-ms-win-crt-time-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-crt-multibyte-l1-1-0
    api-ms-win-crt-filesystem-l1-1-0

    I can't not launch some program anymore

    The only solution i have is to stop svchost running

  • svchost is a wrapper for a service. f.lux doesn't use any services. The one you mention is responsible for handling network connections like Windows Update (which is now EOL'd for Windows 7).

    Have you obtained the software from our website or a third party? I would try to see what it's connecting to, or run an anti-virus check.
