Svchost.exe is the common host process name for the services started by dynamic link libraries. But that doesn't help us much. Some time ago, Microsoft started to translate most of Windows functionality from using internal Windows services (which were started using EXE files) to using DLL files.



Svchost.exe is a process that hosts other Windows services that perform various system functions. You can run multiple instances of svchost.exe on your computer, each containing a separate service. A while ago we published an article on what to do when svchost.exe is consuming most of your CPU.

In this article, I will show you several ways to view the actual process or service running in svchost.exe. Most Windows PCs run 10-20 of these processes. If there is a problem and a specific svchost.exe process has problems, once you know which service is running in that process, you can probably fix it easily.

Task Manager

check svchost cmd

If you're using Windows 10, look no further than the Task Manager. Click Start and type task manager, or press and hold CTRL + SHIFT + ESC on your keyboard. This will bring up the task manager. If you only see a small box with a list of running programs, click "Details" below.

Then click the Processes tab and scroll through background apps and processes until you reachthose up to Windows processes. Keep scrolling until you see the service host :. Some of them should be listed.

As you can see, on each service host, the service name is followed by a semicolon. This way you can easily see which service is associated with which svchost.exe process. If you want to see the exact process ID, right-click on the row and select Go to Details.

You will automatically go to the "Details" tab and automatically select the line corresponding to this process.

We now see that the DHCP client service is running in svchost.exe with process ID 1504. This is by far the easiest way to accomplish this task, but it requires Windows 10. If you have Windows 7 or Windows 7, read the others methods.

Task List Command

In any version of Windows, the command line allows you to list all svchost.exe processes, as well as the service running on each of them. To do this, simply open a Command Prompt by clicking Start and typing cmd.

A list of all running processes will be generated. This list is passed to the find command and filtered To display only svchost.exe processes. If you want to export this to a text file use the following command:

How can I see services in CMD?

Press Win + R keys on your keyboard to open the Run window. Then enter “services. Msc ”and press Enter or press OK.

Note that to view the root directory of the C drive, you must open an Administrator Command Prompt (Start, type cmd, right-click Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator). If it's easier, you can change the path to something else, for example C: \ Users \ username \ Documents.

Why is svchost running so high?

In my experience, svchost.exe (netsvcs) is most likely to cause high CPU or memory usage because your computer is infected with a virus or malicious application. However, other factors can cause this problem: Windows Update.

Click the Processes column heading to sort the list of processes, then scroll down until you see the svchost.exe file. Hover over a process to view the services associated with that process.
