I was looking at the processes window of task manager and there is a process called "svchost.exe" that is running....but there are 4 instances of it! Each one using memory!

what does this do? Is it part of winXP? Can I close any of the four?

That is a part of Windows. They control different aspects of your computer. Unless you know which one is controlling what, I would not close any of them.
