I have had researched on how to "safely" stop it either but doing it manually is quite impossible for me seeing that I dont know which one would be the "safe" one to stop.
What is svchost.exe And Why Is It Running? - How-To Geek
Also when Im at my desktop theres no "svchost.exe"
to be seen in its taskbar while on my laptop theres multiple instances
So is there any software to safely stop or if necessary remove it?
yeah, in theory it's legitimate, but a lot of malwares could hijack it and pose a threat to your system.
