    Hi, Does anyone know what this process is? It is causing my surface pro running windows 10 to heat up and start the fan blowing constantly. The process won't stop. It a memory and process intensive process, it's also causing my computer to slow become slow with inputs and processess of apps. This process is draining the battery fast. can't find a correlation with an app. All apps are closed when this image was taken.

    System could be anything from a OS level task. It could be many many things. How long has W10 been installed on your system? A lot of System tasks run for a few hours after install and sometimes more.

    If it is a regular maintenance system process that's fine with me. I would just like it to be predicably and not start kicking in when I'm mobile and battery is at a premium. But even in batterysaving mode the fan still blew at maximum capacity. I think I would like to report this to microsoft as an issue, but I do not know what to call this problem. Because if the active "servicehost" is a common process, I don't know where its coming from and what process is demanding such high memory and processor capacity. It would be nice to figure out what is causing this problem, but I don't know where to start the find the process doing this within the "servicehost". Any ideas?

    I noticed that a pc restart does not solve the issue. Only a complete pc shutdown and then start up gets rid of the effects of this process. Does that help?

    @moderator: this issue and the image refers to windows 10, not to microsoft surface for windows 8.1 pro. Wrong thread. Please move my post to a windows 10 thread or a microsoft surface thread. Thank you!

    Well, patience comes to those who wait. I read an article last week where updat 10525 released a new type of compressed system memory mapping. Probably this is the culprit of the large memory usage. And since its and insiders build a bug most likely is the cause of the issue. But it could also be a side effect of the new mapping system. So not really a good solution other than accept that untill battery management of this process is improved it will demand a bit more processor power and heating issues.
