I am post infection with Internet Security 2010 (I think). I have always been a little worried about the number of 'svchost.exe' processes listed in my task manager. Since I removed a number of processes from 'start menu' several months back, my computer has been running pretty well (aside from the most recent infection).

The svchost.exe files do not appear to be using system resources...so I assume that is a good thing.

How would one go about identifying what programs these executables are associated with. I see some of them are associated with 'system' and some are associated with 'owner'.

I have not been ale to find a thread that addresses these questions. If there is one avaialble on BC, please advise.

Thanks in advance.
