Unhappy SVCHOSTs how many they should be??

Hello
When i open task Manager I always find about 5 svchost.exe
But ones i had a problem one of them was a virus!!
Its true i got ride of that virus but now after about a year my computer counts 6 svchost.exe none of them is a user process
So here is the question:
In a normale healthy computer how many svchosts there should be?? can they increase in any case??

Yeah, be careful because some of those svchost.exe (service host.exe) may be a windows file or a virus file. Make sure to run you adaware and spybot tools. Another thing, when you run your tools make sure to do all the updates then restart into safe mode and run your tools. You will find that under safe mode you will find more spyware and adaware then in normal windows.
