could some one tell me please what svchost.exe is because there are a few of them in my processes and they take up a bit of memory...is it safe to end the svchost.exe?

No. It is involved in a number of Windows' operating systems' activities.

Make sure what you are seeing is svchost.exe and not scvhost.exe

svchost is a genuine windows file.

scvhost is a virus.
