Svchost.exe is the filename for Generic Host Process for Win32 Services. It is a process name for a group of services that are run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs). This is a process that can run other services underneath itself so it may not be svchost.exe that's the issue, but rather one of the processes running underneath it. See "How to determine what services are running under a SVCHOST.EXE process".

If you do a Google search for Generic Host Process for Win32 Error, you will find this error is a common complaint by many users with no single solution. What works for one person may not work for another.

Start by reading this articles by Microsoft:
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" error message after you start the computer
Generic Host Process Error Message

Its not a matter of switching. Its a matter of keeping current with your OS and all updates released by Microsoft. Using unpatched Windows systems on the Internet is a security risk to everyone. When there are insecure or infected computers connected to the Internet, malware spreads faster and more extensively, distributed denial-of-service attacks are easier to launch, spammers have more platforms from which to send e-mail and more machines become compromised. Whenever a security problem in its software is found, Microsoft will usually create a patch for it. After the patch is installed, attackers can't use the vulnerability to install malicious software on your computer.
