Multiple Processes Running?
I got multiple processes of svchost.exe running and chrome.exe running... This is taking up a lot of memory and I believe I can get my computer to go faster. I took these screenshots in Process Explorer.

Heres screenshots: svchost.exe:

Any help is apprecited. I have Windows XP... Dell Computer that cost like $900 I got plenty of free space and ram etc.

Having multiple svchost.exe processes in the Windows Task Manager is normal.

I don't use Google Chrome, so I don't know if multiple chrome.exe processes is normal. It would be if you have multiple tabs or webpages open at the same time.
