Win10 1703 starts lots of svchost.exe in some systems RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi guys,

    I installed latest win10 1703 in several boxes. I notice that in some of them several system services share one svchost.exe process like it was in previous version of win10/7, but in others each svchost.exe hosts a single service which results in lots of svchost.exe processes running.

    Is there anyway to control this behavior by myself, like by modifying some registry entries?
