Default svchost.exe

I have 6 svchost.exe processes running. I dont thinik there should be that many, but ive tried to close them before and of course the computer shut down. 3 are system processes, 1 is a local service, and 2 are network services. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would go to www.antivirus.com and run a free scan just to be on the safe side. but its your computer.

the drizzle, 6-8 of those processes is rather normal. It really depends on what components/apps you have installed and various other configuration settings. If you end them and the computer turns off, they're critical system services and most likely okay.
