one of them is skinning, one is communications, and some stuff that is loaded before windows starts. I remember seeing that off a site.

To test the skinning... Turn the appearance to Windows Classic mode, and see if one of the service hosts(svchost.exe) goes away.

svchost is the windows service host. It's just a generic host process for services that are run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs). It's not rare for there to be a few of these running, but it shouldn't be causing your computer to freeze... it's probably another program you have running that is causing the lockups.

Here's a list of services that "hide behind" svchost.. go through it and see if you can track down the one that is causing trouble:

Thats not rare, you havent yet stated whether your computer is locking up or sslowing to a crawl as a result of this. If it is, then you may need to re-install MSN. However, I run folding@Home and my system resources are always at 100% used, and I never have a problem.
