Depends on the MD5 - otherwise, it is safe, if not very annoying and memory-hogging.

As far as I can see, Svchost.exe es pretty easy hijacked. It takes 50% of my CPU all time. But, whatever get into it jumps to another program to keep using the 50% procesor. I "saw" when it moved to iexplorer.exe. When this happend, the svchst.exe moved down in the procesor consumtion while iexplorer.exe took over the top position with constant 50% +-2% CPU consumtion. Don't know what it is, I have used Microsoft site procedures with MS site programs (Antivirus, Checkdisk) along with McAffy Antivirus, AnviSmart, GlaryUtilities with results all the same: Sistem with no-problems. However mi PC has been taken by some program and can do no much with little part of the CPU time. Also, Idle Time of the CPU is constantly hi leaving less than 10% all the time of the CPU available to other programs.
