I was using my computer and wanted to divide the processor among two programs when I notices that there were 10x copies of svchost running. 5x under local service, 3x for system, and 2x for network service. are there supposed to be that many of them running?

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W
Graphics Card = GTX 580 2-way SLI

If you're not experiencing any issues, that number is quite normal.
I have 12 of them running right now on Vista.
