DescriptionSvchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs).
The Svchost.exe file is located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services part of the registry to construct a list of services that it must load. Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services. Therefore, separate services can run, depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This grouping of services permits better control and easier debugging. Svchost.exe groups are identified in the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Svchost Each value under this key represents a separate Svchost group and appears as a separate instance when you are viewing active processes.
TIP:With What's Running - select the svchost process and expand the services list to see what services are running inside this process.
