svchost.exe heavy memory useage

Specs: Windows xp
My comp has been running a svchost.exe process at a very high memory rate. I slows down, it has popups in Explorer, and won't let me download security files to help. It also says it's low of virtual memory. I just restarted windows, and it took around ten minutes for the desktop to show up.

do a malware scan with malwarebytes and remove all it finds.
If you can't access it in normal mode then tap f8 on bootup and select safe mode with networking.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
