Hi, I randomly get more than 1 process of a particular program sometimes, for example 2 processes of utorrent, 2 processes of firefox. This nearly always happens with firefox, and when I end the process using the lesser amount of memory, it doesn't come back most the time, however still does on some occasions. I noticed this a few weeks ago, but I haven't made any major alterations to my system which may have caused this. I've done a few virus/trojan scans and they come up clean.

Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated.

That sometimes happens to me, when my computer freezes on me for a bit, but it always disappears. Malware is known to toy around with computers.

Just being curious here, what programs did you scan with, when did this start to happen and did you download/change anything on your computer that day(if you remember)?
