Just noticed in My ''Task Manager'' My Processes tab, I have around 15 (Host Process for Windows Services) 

 

(43 processes)  (CPU usage 3% - 15%) (Physical Memory 28%)

 

The computer is working fine, To my knowledge....

 

Just find it strange that there are 15 Processes of the same thing.

If you're referring to svchost it is absolutely normal to have multiple instances of it running.

 

See here What is svchost.exe? - Windows Help
