Slsvc.exe is a legitimate process that implements the Software Licensing Service for Windows Vista. If you found this process running in your Task manager, you should know that it's a Microsoft Windows process that works on protecting digital products from copyright infringement. It becomes active as soon as you reboot your computer and is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. Slsvc.exe is important Windows process that is needed for a proper PC functionality, so we don't recommend terminating it. However, if you think that this process consumes too much memory or initiates other problems for you, you can terminate it.


Any malware can be named anything, so Slsvc.exe may also be used by scammers for hiding their own viruses. If you noticed that this file is located not in C:\Windows\System32, it might be dangerous. In this case, you should check the system with reputable security application and terminate Slsvc.exe. In order to scan this file, we recommend using RegCure Pro.
