Svchost.exe

svchost.exe scan and repairSvchost.exe (service host) is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) within modern versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services portion of the registry to construct a list of services that it needs to load.

Every machine has programs that run in the background of your operating system, these programs are called services and are what you need Svchost for. Most of the services are implemented in DLL's and you need the Svchost to execute services that are implemented in DLLs. You can check what services you have running on your machine by going to control panel > administrative tools > then Services.

Each machine should be running multiple Svchost's, each one responsible for up to 30 seperate services.

Due to being widespread among running processes, svchost.exe has long been a common disguise used by malware to hide its presence from the user. (One of the common trojan horses deceptively uses scvhost.exe). Users may then run tasklist with no arguments and match the reported PIDs with the previously shown Svchost instances.

If memory usage appears abnormal, the user can look up the service names shown by their command on the internet to see if it is a known service or malware.

You need to run a complete scan of your operating system to search if malware has been installed on the Svchost.exe.
