Change the Startup type to Disabled, press OK and restart your computer. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points. In XP click the start button, click the run button, type "services.msc" in the run box without quotes, and hit enter, does the same thing. Microsoft's Sysinternals Process Explorer also provides information about services running under svchost.exe processes when the user hovers the mouse over the svchost instance.
July 1, 2009 Kim how do you recognize a virus that uses an svchost.exe as a front from a real windows process? The true svchost.exe file is a safe Microsoft Windows system process, called "Generic Host Process". Acting as a host, the file svchost.exe creates multiple instances of itself. So let's say one of them is running at an excessively high CPU usage of 100 percent, how can we identify the actual application running?
According to Microsoft: "svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries". Such service's registry key must have a value named ServiceDll under the Parameters subkey, pointing to the respective service's DLL file. This issue occurs because a handle leak occurs in the Winmgmt service after you install Windows Management Framework 3.0 on the computer. Note:The Winmgmt service is the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)

Even if it's Windows Update or the Firewall, don't worry, you can re-enable it later. June 8, 2008 The Geek @Bill Snow Often viruses and spyware will disguise themselves as legitimate services by either using the same name, or similar names with spelling errors. If you want more info on the Task Manger, check out my articles on understanding the Task Manager. That is what it is that their computer is doing in relation to what one might conceivably want their computer to do.
