Killing svchost after every reboot fixed the problem, but with side effects like not being able to open Microsoft website, and losing network connection after a Hibernate. Step 2: Perform clean boot. Many thanks to all… Talk about a coincidence. However, on next boot I had the problem again.
The source of the program is the printer installation associated with an L7580 Officejet. I never use restore points. I had to do a hard switch off to get out of the problem. Three month ago I disabled automatic updateing. If you are using Windows 10, you do not need to install any third-party antivirus software as there is a default virus protection program called Windows Defender. I think it is because as mentioned in previous comments auto updates is scanning the logging info for its internal use and takes a lot of time especially when the log is big due to a lot of pervious auto updates and also the scanning algorithm might have just been changed after recent update ignorant to this fact.
I am currently getting a Please wait message, until the current program is finished uninstalling. We need to perform a deep or full scan.

I always update my windows for the latest update and there is no problems happen before… Until one day… suddenly my laptop is kind of slow… even watching video the video seems hang-up several times.
