Windows 10: Does 'svchost.exe' being in the 'SysWOW64' folder, constitute a Virus?
Does 'svchost.exe' being in the 'SysWOW64' folder, constitute a Virus?
I have read at multiple places that the file 'svchost.exe' should only be in the 'System32' folder. I searched my PC and this file is also present in the 'SysWOW64' folder. Does this mean that there is a virus/malware?
Note:- I have also read at wikipedia that this file has one of its image located in SysWOW64 folder. So, I am a little confused.
In a 32 bit OS there should only be one copy of svchost.exe and that in windows\system32. But in a 64 bit OS there will also be one in windows\syswow64. They are not the same file. This is a critical system file.
