How can I delete an svchost.exe?
end task :d
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.

@ 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
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.
Try Kaspersky then, It knows how to go about it
svchost.exe is a system file, dont remove it, better you can go with an antivirus program and have it check.
