What’s The Deal with SVCHOST?

Please take note that there’s a big difference between svchost.exe and scvhost. Svchost is a required system component. Don’t mess with it, ever! The latter ( scvhost ) most probably is a virus.

Let me tell you what it is not: On Windows XP, 2000, and 2003, svchost is not a virus. On those systems svchost is a required system component. If you happen to successfully delete it, your system will not run. You’ll be much worse off than before.
