Question SVCHOST.EXE, what is it?!

Hey peeps and peep-esse's,

I was wondering ... what is the SVCHOST.EXE process on Windows XP that takes up round about the same amount of resources as EXPLORER.EXE?

Is it possible to disable or will that cause malfunctioning?

Cheers for the replies guys!

- ZED
