    After update to 8.1, svchost.exe uses internet bandwidth


    Well the title pretty much says it all, after updating to 8.1 from 8, svchost.exe is using a massive amount of my bandwidth.

    I know svchost.exe is a collection of services, but what I want to know is how I can figure out what specifally is using up all my bandwidth.

    I did make sure to disable live tile updating.

    Doesn't happen if i boot into safe mode.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
