  2. 'Host Process for Windows Services' in Volume Mixer

    Something called Host Process for Windows Services shows up in Volume Mixer sometimes, and the bit that shows how much sound its making (the green bit) copies other programs. I can't hear things twice but it is there. I can mute it and everything is fine.
    I have run multiple malware scans all showing nothing. Does anyone know if this is normal or some kind of malware?

    Also - Sometimes I hear a message tone, which happens rarely but always when I hear it Host Process for Windows Services is there.

  3. 'Host Process for Windows Services' in Volume Mixer

    The issue has happened more and more recently and now it seems to happen at least once per day when I'm using my computer, usually around 9-10 pm. I don't know when exactly it started happening as I just thought it was a messaging program or Skype or something,
    but the same sound happens every time. In Task Manager, details, there is a lot of things called 'svchost.exe' with the description of Host process for Windows Services which is the same name as in the Volume Mixer.

    Hi Max,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    In order to get clarity on this issue and assist you with appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the answers to the questions below.

    1. Are you aware of any changes made to this computer prior to the issue?
    2. Are you facing any issues with the sound?

    Before trying the below methods, disconnect all the external devices from your computer expect the keyboard and mouse and go to
    Task Manager > Check for the Host Process for Windows Services in
    Processes, Details, and Services tab in Task Manger. If you see this in any of the tabs, then
    right-click on that process/service, and click on Properties. Then, post a

    Screenshot
    of the Properties window.

    Method 1: Safe Mode.

    Start your computer in Safe Mode and check if you are facing the same issue in Safe Mode as well.

    Method 2: Clean Boot.

    Also, perform a Clean Boot and see what exactly is causing the issue.

    NOTE: A ‘Clean Boot’ starts Windows with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs, so that you can determine whether a background program is interfering with your game or program. Your computer may temporarily lose some functionality
    while in a clean boot environment, however, that functionality will return when you reset the computer to start normally after you have finished your troubleshooting.

    If the Clean Boot works, then don't forget to place the computer to normal boot by going to 'Reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting' section in the Clean Boot link.

    If you are still facing the same issue, then please elaborate on the issue, so that we can understand the concern and get back to us to help you further and post a
    Screenshot of Volume Mixer, where it shows Host Process for Windows Services
    and get back to us to help you further.

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking Yes or No.
