Question c:\WINDOWS\svchost.exe

All of sudden I keep getting this black box titled c:\WINDOWS\svchost.exe popping up, if I leave them they multiply slowly and if I click the X it does the whole "Programme not responding, end now." Any idea what it is and how to get rid of them, they're annoying and interupt when I'm playing games.

svchost.exe is a windows error? I never knew that. I see it in my task manager all the time and my system functions properly.

It's not a windows error:

svchost.exe is a system process belonging to the Microsoft Windows Operating System which handles processes executed from DLLs. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated. Note: svchost.exe is a process which is registered as the W32.Welchia.Worm. It takes advantage of the Windows LSASS vulnerability, which creates a buffer overflow and instigates your computer to shut down
