Windows 7: svchost command prompt on login

svchost command prompt on login

Whenever I log in, I see a command prompt for install\svchost.exe pop up and run for a few seconds before disappearing. This did not happen in the past and I don't remember making any changes to the system recently. This appears to have no noticeable effects on the system. What is this and why did it start happening? Is it anything to worry about?
