Introduction to conhost.exe

Conhost.exe is an executable of Console Window Host. This file belongs to Microsoft® Windows® Operating System developed by Microsoft Corporation. It's an invisible system file, which means you cannot check it though Windows Explorer. Conhost.exe is found in the %SYSTEM% folder by default and its normal size is 270,848 bytes.

Conhost.exe process is able to resolve a basic issue in the same way as earlier versions of Windows dealt with console windows. It is an absolutely liable process provided it is always located in the system32 folder, and is digitally stamped by Microsoft. Checking your machine for any infection is always a good habit to prevent conhost.exe being spoiled by viruses, Trojan or spyware.

The conhost.exe has overcome the issue about how the console processes behave on previous versions of Windows. Before the console processes are all controlled by the csrss.exe service instead. This file functions as a system-level account. After having a look at the command prompt on Windows, you'll likely find that the windows never apply the active theme, just because the CSRSS process is not able to be handled in this way.
