Controlling SVCHost


Recommended Posts

SVChost keeps talking when I don't want it too: slows the computer, or uses up bandwidth or datavolume. When I blocked all SVCHost nothing worked so I have to do it site by site.


I heard SVCHost described as a taxi, lots of progs take it to get onto the internet.


Here's a video of how I do it. Repeat about 100 times over the next few months.


Wish there was a way I could transfer my, now large, Firewall rules file to other computers.


Look forward to hearing if there is an easier way to do this.


If the vid doesn't run on yours, unfortunately the avi is a bit too big. Anyone know a different translation prog, I use VLC?

thanks for your interest

no need to be shocked


all unmeasured:

my vista computer runs faster with v5 than v8

eset v5 interface responds faster


bought multiple licences so can also run v5 on a Win2000, mostly offline, notebook. Eset unpacks more files on this, ie fewer blue NSIS archive damaged messages with W2000 than with my vista computer. 


from my memory there is an extra option in v5 firewall than in v8, ie full automatic mode remains an option even after setting your own rules in v5, but i'm not reinstalling v8 to find out.


i run regular scans, but if I am jeopardizing my security with v5 i would be happy if someone would tell me why.


i hope this feedback helps.
