    Why should you at all ?????

    svchost.exe is a normal (and *essential*) system process : Microsoft Service Host Process.
    If you remove it, your system might cease to function.

    To know more about svchost.exe, read this : www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/what-is-svchostexe-and-why-is-it-running/

    @ naimish :
    If you try ending svchost.exe like that, you will be presented with a system shutdown warning with a 1 minute time-out.
    The only way to over-ride that auto-shutdown is "shutdown -a".

    No SP :) actually why he has asked to remove svchost.exe is I think the same problem I was facing.

    Sometimes, there are so many svchost.exe files are running, only 1 is good and the rest are viruses...so need to remove them by ending.

    The shutdown error is only come when you end the original one. I tried checking with an AV Systems, and it has delcared its as Virus :D

    If it was about the virus issue, then it's ok to remove (end) an svchost.exe.
    But, you should be *absolutely* sure b4 doing that, and removing system processes is not for novice users.

    @ yohan :: Try removing the file yourself, if you really know what you are doing. Else, I would recommend using AV solutions.

    svchost.exe is a system file, dont remove it, better you can go with an antivirus program and have it check.
