You are not going to be able to. svchost.exe is a standard OS programs that can run multiple instances of itself when it needs to. It is not a virus.

Why do you think it is a virus?

It does sometimes ACT like one... :/ 

svchost is very annoying in the corporate environment since it is used for updates to company PC's. You can expect your system to grind to a halt on Monday mornings while the update runs.

Go to google, download the 2 applications.


Avira antivir, Free antivirus / antispyware software, runs great.

Malwarebytes anti malware... best free spyware cleaner I know of.

Scan your computer with one, then with the other.

You shoud be set...
