    SvcHost Virus

    Hello Alex,



    The real svchost.exe is a legitimate Windows process that performs services for other Windows programs. It's normal to have half a dozen or more of them running at once.
    Svchost always runs under one of the three usernames SYSTEM, LOCAL SERVICE or NETWORK SERVICE. Running under any other username, especially yours or another user's username, could be a symptom of a malware infection.
    To isolate the issue, kindly provide us the following information:

    • Have you made any changes on your computer prior to the issue?
    • Have you recently modified a software or hardware on your computer?
    • Can you tell us the troubleshooting steps that you have done so far?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you put your computer in a clean boot state and check if there are any software conflicts. To place your computer in a clean boot state, kindly go to this

    link
    .



    We’ll be waiting for your response.

    RAM Died: svchost error

    svchost is part of the OS, it just interacts with other aspects.

  4. Svchost virus?

    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.
