Directly after booting up my computer, I see in CTRL+ALT+DEL Processes tab that I have 7 svchost.exe files running. How can I tell if they are legitimate or bad? Here are the paths:
c:\WINDOWS\$NTServicePackUninstall$ (I think this is a hidden file--I have hidden files turned off and it's in blue)
That's is what I get when I do a drive search for svchost.exe.
I see that I have WINDOWS twice in my computer--on the c: drive and the d: drive. I'll have to ask about that later.
I think my computer is running slower than it used to and I am checking out my startup files.
