Windows 7: How to stop svchost.exe process

How to stop svchost.exe process

Hi, this svchost runs out of nowhere, most of the time it runs when I stop using the computer for like an hour or it runs when Norton is running a background performance, but even if Norton finished its job, the svchost won't stop. It happens once in a while, but sometimes it happens very frequently, it eats a lot of my cpu usage, when I end its process in the task manager, it kills my aero theme, restore my sounds,background to its default, etc. To end this svchost process back to normal I have to turn the pc off, even restarting it, it wont go away. So my question is, Is there a way to end this process in a safe way? i have attached an image of the services that this svchost is running, because there are around 8 or 9 svchost running at the same time. thanks

BTW, I am using windows 7, 64 bit
