High Windows 8 CPU usage

Hello guys,

I have Envy 6 Sleekbook 1126ea,


Thats with 
8gb RAM (4x2)
and A6 AMD 4455m CPU

I recently upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1

And I keep noticing that I have unusual CPU spikes. Some processes such as:
svchost.exe Service Host: Local Service (No Network)

push CPU to 95% and some times to 100%

Is anyone else experiencing CPU overflow in these A6 AMD models on win8??
Is it the win 8 fault or thats just A6 being sucky and slow. (I know that its not the best processor out there now)
