I don't ever remember having this many processes running on my computer, specifically svchost.exe.

I don't have that many startup programs or at least I did not think so, does anything look weird or out of place?? :)

Thanks much,

I've got six. I win.
SVCHOST powers many core Windows functions so depending on what you're doing at the time its possible to have loads of these in Task Manager.
