Configure a Service to Run in its Own svchost Process

Q: How can I make a service run in its own svchost.exe process?

A: I recently had someone who wanted to run Windows Update in its own svchost process. (It normally it runs in an svchost.exe process with other services.) To make Windows Update run in its own svchost.exe process, run the following code.

Sc config wuauserv type= own

Note that you can change the service name to whatever service you need to run in its own svchost process.
