Just had a look in task manager and there is 11 versions of svchost.exe available.
Never noticed so many before is that normal for W/7.
None of them taking up any use of the CPU but just looked odd.
Nothing running on the computer just now.
oops poker stars is switched on and IE8.

Thought I would have a look at my HP Laptop only 6 running on XP home

Hi woodchip that is why I was a bit worried I am sure i had only 5 or 6 running on XP before I started using W/7 and have been in Taskmanager lots of times and never noticed so many as I have now.
Mind you I probably was not looking at them before.
Thanks woodchip.Zeppelyn.and VoG™ for getting back to me.

It may be the Programs running that need it
