SVCHOST.exe are needed,but do be aware these can be disguised as a virus or malware.Though i dont think you have SVCHOST.exe because there is a good chance your cpu usage would be high. Though do run your Antivirus in safemode.Tapping F8 on startup will get you into safemode.
The advice above is sound,but if you are unsure of the startup programs in msconfig,try using ccleaner and startup under the tools section click here and remove whats not needed on startup.
