Serviceshost: Network service - Delivery Optimization - constantly using 17% CPU

I checked if windows updates was doing something but it was not. The latest update was already installed. 

Then I tried a virus scan and Bitdefender suggested me to restart my PC for updates. Now the problem is fixed.

So for some reason Restarting my PC solved it. While shutting down last time I used it and starting it up again this morning did not fix the problem.

 

The windows updates sharing over lan was indeed enabled which I disabled. I found this and tried it before posting my problem here but it did not seem to do anything. Maybe restaring was needed to actually disable this feature.

 

Thanks for the help.

Hi,

 

My windows 10 laptop has for the past couple of weeks now had an issiue where the Servicehost: Networkservice is constantly using about 17% of my CPU. Normally my pc could get down to about 4% CPU usage on idle. But now it is at least 18% because of this. Making my fans spin up when another fore- or background proces starts running.

I tried shutting the Delivery service down via the Services window. But this did not work. It said:

"Can't stop Delivery Service on local computer"

"Error 1053: The service did not respond correctly on the start or driver"

Does anyone know what the problem is and how to solve it?

 

Thank you.

What it could be:

  • Windows updates are installing/downloading.
  • Windows 10 includes a feature that sends parts of previously downloaded updates to PCs that need them. By default it's set to share them to LAN PCs and PCs on the Internet.
    • Open the PC Settings app, then navigate to "Update and Security", then click "Delivery Optimization"
    • From there you can restrict it to LAN PCs or turn it off completely.
