    Svchost.exe?  And startup but not in startup file?
    Dear All,

    Can you tell me what svchost.exe is? I'm always getting a box saying it has generated errors and will be closed.

    Also, a lot of things start up without being in the startup file. Where does the computer get the command to start those things up? The registry or somewhere else? And if I wanted to stop them, how would I do it? Thanks.
