The first one only needs to be remove if its causing problems. Ive heard the some svchost.exe can be viral. 7 certainly seems like a lot.

SOUNDMAN.exe sounds like some kind of software for your sound card.

spoolsv.exe, svchost.exe, and System are all system processes and are supposed to be running on your computer.

I'm running five svchost.exe processes and my computer is virus/mal-ware free.

Yes, SOUNDMAN.exe is fine. It's my soundcard configorator...

Well my pc hasn't picked up any virus even when I've run about 4 different scanners so it must be fine.

Thanks for your input

Looks good to me. Are you running an Asus MB? They use Soundman. The only thing I would be suspicious of is sysense.exe which isn't a system process...

Sysense is a program that displays my adsense stats on my desktop. It's a great program.
