What is svcdhost.exe?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have noticed every once in a while in my resource monitor that the program svcdhost.exe is using a lot of cpu power. I checked out this link but would like your guys take on it. Maybe a dumbed down version of this explanation.

Svchost.exe or svcd*host.exe?


if its svcdhost I would really recommend a virus scan ASAP, if its svchost.exe your fine.

Please note:
Virus' can name themselfs the same thing as system services (E.g. explorer.exe, svchost.exe, ctfmon.exe)

It's built into it but why 50% cpu usage that doesn't seem to go away unless I do something about it? My computer sounds like a freakin F16 sometimes when it gets maxed out with that and other programs.

Haha, said svcd. That's an older video format. Super video cd. Maybe I had that on my brain.

I just ended the process. Didn't seem like it affected anything. Could a virus hijack that progam and cause it to to go full throttle?
