    Default What is svchost and why running 6 processes?

    Hey everyone!!

    After all the spyware, adware etc... clean ups, I noticed that svchost.exe was running 6 times on my processes list. I saw from the hijack logs that others are running the same (and no one ever said "delete it" so I assume it is legit. So what is it?
