  3. [#0005ff]As has been suggested, it isn't unusual but if you're worried about it, hit the Windows key and R together and in the Open box, type cmd /k tasklist /svc then hit Enter. The black form that follows shows you which SvcHost is doing what.

    Right click anywhere in that form and hit Enter to clipboard all the text. Post back here and use Control V to reproduce the text in your reply and someone will advise you on it.
