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.

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.
