It is not unusual for serveral versions of svchost to run concurrently, and these are part of the Windows OS that manages DDLS and processes and are located in the c:\windows\System32 folder. If a version of svchost is located elsewhere, then it is most likely a virus. The welchia worm virus (see Symantic for a removal tool) is located in Windows\System32\Wins\Dllhost.exe

John
