How do I do this?
I have a couple of svchost running sometimes, but sometimes one of them goes to 1GB usage which destroys my computer

To find out what your running services are and how much resources they are taking, copy/paste the following into notepad and save it as ServiceQuery.ps1
Once saved, locate that file, right click it, and select "Run with Powershell".
Once you have identified which service is taking up the memory, you should take steps to identify why it's doing and how to remediate. A word of caution: it is considered extremely bad practice to terminate a service without investigation. You don't know what it does, and how terminating it will adversely affect your computer.

svchost is not a trojan. I have it, you most likely have it, even Caliber and 0x90 have it. If it's spiking up to 1 GB memory use there is some other program trying to launch or use a .DLL or multiple .DLL's and isn't having much in terms of success. I figure the best thing to do is keep restarting your computer until it goes back down to safe levels. Currently, my largest use of memory for an svchost process (I have more than one showing up on my TaskManager) is about 327 Megabytes of RAM, out of my total 16000 Megabytes. It's a third of the range the threadstarter said his was at.
Press Resource Monitor button at bottom of performance window
Look at CPU list, sort by name so you can see the svchosts and see which side system it is running.
My guess it will be the LocalSystemNetworkRestricted that is spiking.
One hint I will give if you are running 7 or higher, and only have 2GB-4GB RAM, turn off Superfetch.
You can do this via Start Menu > msconfig and run that
Look at the service tab and look for superfetch and disable it.
Superfetch is handy with high amounts of RAM as it will fetch any services or programs you use continually and pre-load them which helps load up apps/games etc faster. Pain in the nut sack when you have low memory, recommended for 8GB+ users.
