    There can be several svhost processes running at any givin time, depending on what services you're using. I have 5 different ones running right now. I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure svhost stands for "service host" or something like that. The point is, one of them has RPC, or Remote Procedure Call, which is neccesary to Windows. If canceled, the system will order a shutdown, and should send you a message telling you so. If this happens regularly than you should refer to the thread labled "Remote Procedure Call error fix" in this forum. But it's not a problem if you manually canceled the service just once.
