I've noticed lately that my computer runs more slowly at certain times than others. mcafee and ad-aware don't find anything, but i've noticed i have a large number of svchost.exe files running. (or large in comparison to the other processes) about 8 or so on average. is this normal? if it isn't, how do i go about finding the ones i do and do not want to get rid of?


i'm running Windows XP professional
