    It's not uncommon to be running more Svchost.exe processes (5 on most of my PC's but my server runs 8 of them, some people can get away with 2 depending on services required though some can run more).

Therefore, separate services can run, depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This grouping of services permits better control and easier debugging.

    Read the XP (or 2000) Services guide at It's common to have four or five, although it's quite possible you don't need more than two or three.

    BTW, PersianImmortal quit some time ago. However, his fabulous guide work is continued at
