"-k DcomLaunch" is the process grouping parameter. It allows Windows to load multiple DLL files under a single shared svchost.exe process of the same group name.
In other words, all services that are launched by the same "svchost.exe -k DcomLaunch" command will be running under a single shared process of svchost.exe.
