    Windows Processes: Service Host


    Hello,


    I have noticed suspicious activity on my computer and I was wanting to know if there was a Service Host that allows people from the Microsoft Corporation to sign in to peoples computers.


    If this is so, may I ask what the Service Host is?


    Thanks!

    :)

  2. Host Process for Windows Services task

    Hi Mehrdad,

    The Host Process for Windows Services task is an official Microsoft core process. It serves as a host for services that load from
    Dynamic Linked Library (DLL) files which cannot institute services as a full process.

    You will only be able to see exactly what service attached to the Host Process for Windows Services task by using a third-party application.

    Please provide the answers to the following for us to be able to learn more about the issue you're experiencing:

    • Is your Windows 10 up-to-date?
    • What are the changes made or the things you've done before the issue persist?
    • Have you tried closing all the applications and still can see this task?

    Meanwhile, running the System File Checker might help in repairing
    missing or corrupted system files. System File Checker or
    SFC
    is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore these corrupted files.

    Also, can you create another administrator account and observe if the issue persists? Here's a
    link on how to create another user account in Windows 10.

    Let us know what happens after following the above mentioned troubleshooting methods.

    Thank you.

    Unable to run Windows 10 services hosted by SVCHOST.EXE as a shared process.

    Hi John,

    Svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries. If you’ve ever taken a look at the Services section in Control Panel, you’ve probably noticed that Windows requires a lot of services. If every
    single service ran under one Service Host process, a failure in one service could potentially bring down all of Windows. Instead, they are separated out.

    Services are organized into logical groups that are all somewhat related, and then a single Service Host instance is created to host each group.

    If one of these services is causing trouble, you can follow the methods below to help resolve the issue:

    Method 1: Check Related Services in Task Manager

    • Open Task Manager.
    • If it is under a host with multiple services, simply expand the process.
    • Under Processes tab, right-click on any individual services to stop it. You can also search for the service's information online.

    Method 2: Check Related Services Using Process Explorer

    Microsoft has an excellent advanced tool for working with processes called Process Explorer. It's a portable app so you don't have to install it. Refer on this article to know more about
    Process Explorer.


    Should you need further assistance, feel free to post your query anytime.
