  1. Problem with Windows Store download and svchost


    I had Forza Horizon 4 downloading in the background for a while and i didn't realize the download would resume when I turned on my PC again. I was having network issues, and having forgotten I was downloading the game, I went to my resource monitor and saw svchost receiving 8MB/s. I suspended the process and disabled the BITS service. When I went to the store and saw that 50GB of the game had been downloaded I assumed it was likely why svchost was taking so much bandwidth. I went to try and download the game again, and it just gets stuck where it is and doesn't make any progress. THIS is where it gets really confusing for me. I re-enabled BITS and restarted my PC and svchost was back in the resource monitor eating up 8MB/s, but the windows store download is still stuck. I don't really know what my options are here. Is there possibly a different svchost I disabled and can't find? Could this svchost currently eating bandwidth be malware? I may recall a time where svchost did this when I wasn't downloading anything on the windows store or even had it open but I'm not sure. Maybe the game isn't downloading because this process is eating up the bandwidth?

    Analyzing Svchost processes in Windows

    Here's how to track down detailed information about any Svchost.exe process running in Windows 7/8.

    a) You can use the Tasklist command-line tool to learn which services are running in a Svchost.exe. Just run cmd (command prompt) and hit

    Tasklist /svc /fo list

    Scroll through the list and find what you need. It's not quite intuitive so you can use third party programs with gui. See below:

    b) You can use svchost viewer. Best utility. Note: to run this under XP you need .Net framework 2.0

    c) Svchost Process Analyzer is another app for that.

    d) And another app called Svchost lookup tool

    e) And it won't hurt if you use Process Explorer and System Explorer.


    It's never bad to keep your system under control, plus all these apps are portable no installation is required.

  3. What does the svchost do?

    Lots of Windows services are tied to the SVChost, and /or are listed as SVChost in the process list(s).

    Unfortunatley with Vista, there's a lot more dependencies between the services, and thus you'll be FORCED to run more instances of SVChosts; unlike XP where things were more independent and you could disable more features resulting in less SVChost instances. That and XP and Vista are different.

    Regardless of your Windows version, you can check out some service slimming guides or goto Black Viper's website and take his advice. Depending on your needs you may be able to cut down the amount of SVChost running, and save some RAM.

    XP should never have an SVChost using 50mb. Vista however can.

    Problem with Windows Store download and svchost

    RAM Died: svchost error

    Isnt svchost a service related to programs tho, and not the OS itself?
    Like for example, there are multiple svchosts at any one time for multiple programs.

    Though i suppose that still suggests the OS is buggered at the core.
