Windows 7: What is considered a high SVCHost (MB) number? (Win 7 HP 64)

What is considered a high SVCHost (MB) number? (Win 7 HP 64)

I got this computer about a year ago and I noticed with my SVCHost files I got about 12 (which is normal) but the one starts at 100mb when I turn on the computer and gets up to about 450mb. It doesn't slow down my computer or anything. But I was simply wondering is 450mb to high? Or does it just vary depending on your setup?

I also have a few various programs going including the MS Security Essentials and MS Firewall. Which I heard does increase it. I also know not to be worried unless SVCHost starts using alot of CPU, mines only at like 5%. I only have 8gigs of memory. Maybe I'll get more if possible. I run games fine though like Hitman Absolution and so on.

Thanks for any answers/help!

Sorry for the typo in the title. ^.^

There is nothing wrong. Using RAM improves performance. You have plenty of RAM let the computer use it.

And pfffft you say "only have 8gigs" like its nothing...I bet you hardly touch 8 GBs. Games hardly use any RAM after 4 GB.

Ah ok I see. I wans't sure, so many people online are like "Anything over 100mb for a svchost must be a virus!". >.> Thanks!
