Send the error reports as this may give you the solution to your problem.

I have svchost.exe running several times on my system so it's normal, but if you think it's a problem post a Hijackthis log. Read about svchost.exe here

If you think you may be infected post a Hijackthis log here.

How to submit a log

Download Hijackthis

Five instances of svchost.exe is normal. These are generic processes necessary to run your computer and if you delete them, you're toast.

Some malware can use the svchost for its own nefarious purposes, but you shouldn't be trying to delete the files.
