Not sure where to post this type of question, but...

In my list of processes, I have three instances of SVCHOST.exe.

Two of them are listed under my account, and one is listed
as System.

It doesn't seem to be causing any problems, so I'm just
wondering if this is normal.

Yes, that is normal. The following is from the Microsoft Knowledgebase:

Svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that are run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs). The Svchost.exe file is located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services portion of the registry to construct a list of services that it needs to load. There can be multiple instances of Svchost.exe running at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services, so that separate services can be run depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This allows for better control and debugging.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
