Depends on the MD5 - otherwise, it is safe, if not very annoying and memory-hogging.(id: 502181)

THREATrating from user catilley1092 for file C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe
This is obviously some type of threat, as only recently, my CPU has spiked at 100% for long periods of time. Task Manager reveals this file as being the culprit. XP Pro, OEM reinstall twice has this issue. In past reinstalls, this hasn't been an issue.(id: 505275)
