I have 3 svchost.exe's running in the task list 1 in system 1 in local service and 1 in network service. Is this right?

my startup is copied below

I'm tring to find the cause of an unknown program "TRD" running and causing a slow down in shutdown as XP pauses to shut down TRD in c:\progfiles\common....

Any help would be great!

Thanks in advance!
