SVCHOST.EXE - What is it? From Microsoft: Svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs).However, in English it is a process that loads a selection of dynamic link libraries as they are needed for programs.

You must ensure that a computer or laptop is kept cleaned inside and out so that air can move through the chassis and keep the heat moving out.
