    sYchost.exe is a virus - this was your post header.

    sVchost.exe is part of windows - this is what you subsequently posted about!!

    which one do you have??

    sVchost.exe is not a virus. It's a generic titled windows background service that could be doing any number of tasks. It's normal to show multiple svchost.exe's running. Don't worry about it.
