svchost.exe is a process that runs other processes - so there's likely to be a number of programs running under that instance of svchost.exe.
To add to the confusion, there's several of them running on the PC - so you'll have to figure out which one it is. The "easiest" way is to open up Task Manager, click on the Processes tab, click on the View menu item, select "Select columns" and then put a checkmark in the PID box.
This'll reveal the Process Identifier for each of the processes. Then, when this process dies, it'll disappear from the Task Manager's Processes tab.
Equipped with this number you can use this free utility to see what's running underneath that particular svchost.exe process (just hover your mouse over it and it'll tell you what is there): http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...ssExplorer.mspx
Armed with the name of the process we can troubleshoot that - but you may want to try some free, online scans to rule out malware:http://safety.live.comhttp://housecall.trendmicro.com
