svchost.exe is the core system services......i think.its the reason windows runs.every one has it.its no virus.just download malwarebytes antimalware and run a scan.and if no viruses turn up.your mind will be in peace.

Shouldn't there be only 1 svchost.exe in C:\WINDOWS\System32?
Because ppl keep saying that if you got svchost.exe in C:\WINDOWS\ and not in the C:\WINDOWS\System32 then its a virus?
