multiple svchost.exe files in task manager etc

  dranrebtims 19:58 07 Jun 2007

Is it normal to have multiple SVCHOST.EXE showing in task manager . I have 6 at present 3 in SYSTEM , 2 in NETWORK SERVICE and 1 in LOCAL SERVICE.

I have read that they are part of Norton but it seems a bit much to have 6.

Mu CPU peaks at 100% when first accessing internet but often spike up from time to time.

Is there any way to check if the EXE files are genuine of duds.

I have Norton running as well as Spyware Doctor , Diskeeper and Registry Mechanic. Have I got too many things on my PC
