Greetings.

push ctrl + alt + del and under processes I see 10 instances of svchost.exe. Yes I can give you a screen shot...

Seems a little strange what?

One of them is eating between 60,000k and 80,000k of my memory.

All of this seems a little extreme.

Needless to say my machine is running (very) poorly.

Can someone help me here?

Duplicate topic here. One of our staff have offered you help on this....take it. You have a ton of programs running there and I'm sure they are related to those multiple svchost.exe processes. I would say 4-5 running is normal.
