Service Host: Local System (Network Restricted) High Disk Usage

Hello,
so Service Host: Local System (Network Restricted) process keeps using my disk very much 99% and I have no idea why, the problem is that it slow down my pc when it's doing it. Any ideas why is this happening?

  1. is that the service with WLAN Auto config under it? if you look in task manager, and click the arrow next to service it shows the process under it

    Try doing a clean boot and see if its a program loading at start up: https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/kb/929135

    right click start button
    choose command prompt (admin)
    type SFC /scannow and press enter

    this scans system files and may fix this behaviour

    Thanks for the reply!
    No, I don't think it's the one with WLAN Auto Config it's the one with Windows Driver Foundation, Distributed Link Tracking Client, Superfetch, Storage Service, Program Compatibility Assistant Service, Network Connection Broker, Human Interface Device Service, Device Association Service, Windows Audio Endpoint Builder.

    I already done the part with scannow... But it didn't find anything.

    To make thing clear it's not doing it all the time but when it does it, well like I said Disk Usage is 99%

    only one of those that is known to cause problems is superfetch: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/disable-superfetch-prefetch-ssd

    Seems to work fine now, thanks!
    One more question, why does it say "(Network Restricted)"?
  5. I don't know. Might mean it doesn't have access to internet. I can't find anything that explains what it means :)
  6. This is a common issue now a days. I have fixed this through following:

    1. Turned automatic updates off.
    2. Installing registered windows.
    3. Followed these suggestions.
