Yesterday i noticed that my pc (Surface pro 4, i7 16gb ram 512gb hdd) started running slow, after using it normally. Started looking and saw that google chrome was using more than 50% of cpu. Closed chrome and the usage didnt change that much. Stopped all chrome services found running even without chroem open, and usage changed for a bit before getting slow again.
Found out that "Service Host: DCOM Server Process Launcher" is runnign a from time to time it uses 50-60% cpu wich is when the computer gets slow and the cursor frozes.
Thank you for any help
