What is SVCHOST.exe

  118-118 Got Your Number 10:17 23 Nov 2004

I was looking through the Task Manager and noticed that SVCHOST.exe was using quite a lot of memory.

There was also several other SVCHOST in the list but they weren't doing anything at the time.

Is SVCHOST.exe a legit system service or is spyware.

It's an integral part of the latest Windows operating systems and you will no doubt find a number of instances of it running.

Unless you are having any problems it should be left well alone.
