What is svchost.exe?

Host Process for Windows Tasks is a generic process which acts as a host for processes that run from DLLs rather than EXEs. At startup TASKHOST checks the Services portion of the Registry to construct a list of DLL-based services that it needs to load, and then loads them.

It is installed with a couple of know programs including Videos TV Deluxe published by Micro Application, SOS Videocassettes from Easy Computing and SOS Videocassettes by Easy Computing. The file is digitally signed by Microsoft Corporation. This version is installed on Windows XP and is compiled as a 32 bit program.
