Svchost.exe is one of those little understood, and more often misunderstood things on our computers. I think we did a fairly good job of explaining what is the Svchost.exe process and why are so many of it running?

Svchost.exe is a system file that enables Windows to launch other programs. Many of Windows processes are run via DLL (Dynamic Linked Library) files. But DLLs cannot start and run on their own. The Windows operating system needs an executable program that can act as a bridge to launch these DLLs. The svchost.exe file is that ‘bridge’.
