What is svchost.exe and what does it do?

  1. I have often wondered about this. I usually have 3 or 4 in my processes and they tend to grow rather large. I presume they are Windows processes, but I wonder what they actually do and why they get so big.
    What would happen if I just descided to end one of them?
