lol i use to have one of these on my older comp, if your windows system is a 64 bit, I STRONGLY recommend to do a scan with a bunch of trojan removers, also send it to virustotal.com

for me this svchost.exe on my other 64 bit comp turned out to be a trojan bitminer used to mine bitcoins for the attacker that is why it might be using so much space, iether way i strongly suggest you scan scan scan before assuming anything.

"Service host"32.exe...does not appear to be the same as "service host.exe".

The first appears related to malware, while the second is a normal process reflected in Windows.

I'm moving your topic to Am I Infected.
