All these svchost processes in Windows 10 is normal.


According to Microsoft, the memory-saving advantage of service hosts has diminished thanks to increased RAM size in modern devices. So, if a PC has 3.5+ GB of RAM installed, svchost won't group services any more. So don't be surprised to see 60+ instances of the svchost process in Task Manager.

Hi, in general this is a good move, some serious gamers will modify this to group svchost processes from the 70+ down to 6-7.
