    Computer seems to be running rather slow. Looking at Task Manager, there are 7 instances of svchost.exe running using anywhere from 64K to 10,116K of memory. Just wanted to know if this was typical and/or how to figure out which ones are really necessary and how to rid myself of the ones that aren't.
