Threat (0 is low, 10 is high): 3
Effects: Loads DLLs as executable processes and loads services from the registry.
Status: 'svchost.exe' is not critical.
Path: c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe

The service host process (svchost.exe) navigates the services-to-be-started section of the Windows registry for services to launch, then constructs lists of processes to launch. Svchost is considered a 'generic' structure for processes that run as dynamic link libraries (DLLs) however, act as executables. This process isn't critical, however, in some cases, the particular instance can be running a critical process.
