What is svchost.exe And Why Is It Running the How-To Geek - http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vis...-is-it-running/

How to determine what services are running under a SVCHOST.EXE process - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/list-services-running-under-svchost.exe-process/

AFAIK, the number of entries for svchost.exe will vary according to what is installed/running on your system. I currently reflect 8 entries and I don't allow fluff to run on my systems.
