    50,000+ handles and 2,000 Threads just from start up. On a I7-6700k Processor


      So, recently I have begun to notice my laptop slow down in terms of speed. First my charger had bugged out saying it wasn't charging, fixed that my re-installing the battery driver. Then I checked Task Manager and found I was using 50-75% of my CPU by just being on my desktop. So I did some research and found I had 500,000 handles and about 5,000 threads running, the main cause of this was svchost.exe but whenever I end that task, it just re-opens and continues to collect and add more handles. As of writing this I just re-started my laptop about 5 minutes ago and I have 100,000 handles.

      My specs are:

           Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz

           16 Gb of RAM

           64 Bit operating system.

      Now after finishing this my handles have gained 25,000 more as of typing this post. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this that would be awesome
