KHost.exe Description :

Kontiki Delivery Manager Client. VeriSign's Kontiki is peer-to-peer software (P2P) used to deliver in a totally secure manner full-screen video over the Internet. It can also be used for delivering software, electronic manuals, etc.., but its primary use remains the secure delivery of full-screen video. At the time of writing, 20-Jun-2007, the Kontiki software is used mainly in the UK by broadcasters such as Channel 4 On-Demand, Sky Broadband Movies, Sky Anytime, or BBC Digital through their iPlayer. Of late, however, the Kontiki software is starting to appear in the US & Canada with some broadcasters such as AOL Hi-Q Video.

This particular startup background task enforces the security implemented by the provider of the content you want to view and then enables you to view it.

KHost.exe Recommendation :

Given the possible consequences on your Internet connection in having this process run when you are not watching a video, our advice is to ensure that it is disabled on the Startups tab - Read our write-up of this task's sister service, KSERVICE.EXE, the Kontiki Delivery Manager Service on the Services tab of TUT (look for KSERVICE in the Service Name column).

From our tests double-clicking on the icon installed on your desktop by the software from your favourite broadcaster, starts this program if it is not already started, thus ensuring that you can still watch downloaded content even this program did not run automatically at Windows boot-up.
