Actually, some of the svchost.exe processes can be terminated. Those most easily terminated without problems are those that are running as a Local Service.
But, the problem isn't with svchost.exe - but rather the processes running underneath them. Some will reboot your system, and some won't do anything. Each instance of svchost.exe can have one or many processes running under it.
You can use this free tool to view what processes are underneath each one (be sure to remember which one belongs to which PID so that you don't switch them around by accident): http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...ssExplorer.mspx
