Running Windows XP Pro. Checked my Task Manager. Found 4 "svchost.exe" running:

scvhost.exe - local service - 2,296k
scvhost.exe - network service - 2,064k
scvhost.exe - system - 11,940k
scvhost.exe - system - 2,748k

Is this right? 4 applications with the same name running?

Someone please help ...
