Why does "Service Host: Local System" always runs in the background? How to disable it?

This Service Host always keeps running in the background. Apart from slowing my PC, it also continuously consumers data. Thus it also increases my broadband charges. Is there any way to disable it? Please help!

Thank you sir.

There are two issues:

  1. Why is it consuming data? Its increasing by broadband bill.
  2. The thread you shared had 9 pages. Sach page has some 10 answers i think. Its hard to know which one of then will really work. It would be great if you share a screenshot of the right answer.
