DirectoryService high CPU utilization
Authored by: Spliff on Jul 14, '10 10:23:21AM

Same thing happened to me. With only a few entries in my host file, I had no problems. But then I used the MVPS host file (http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm) which has a ton of blocked domains. Then I noticed the DirectoryService process frequently monopolizing the CPU. Removing the majority of the host file entries fixed the problem for me.

Maybe it's a bug.
