Facing - Service host high cpu usage

I’m having Glasswire installed on my Laptop. Everything is working fine. However, sometime my laptop becomes very slow. After having a deep look in the task manager, I found that “Service Host: Local Service (No Network) (3)” is taking high cpu usage. May be, that’s the reason my laptop become slow.

Any suggestion?

Though Remah is suggesting you to discuss your issue in a Windows Forum, I am still dropping some quick links that you can try to fix your issue.

If this doesn’t work, then you should definitely listen to Remah.
