Just wondering, what is this "svchost"? when I hit CTRL ALT DEL and check out my processes, there's like 5 copies of it running. Why does windows do this?

Windows 2000/XP only. SVCHOST is a generic process which acts as a host for other processes running from DLLs. Depending on the configuration of your system there may be more than one instance of SVCHOST showing in the Task List.

Recommendation :
An integral part of the operating system, leave alone.

Where I got that from:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
