Yes, nice links!
I've also got 7 svchost.exe running - not unusual at all. If you're running XPPro - go to a command prompt and type in tasklist /svc and press Enter. It'll list what's running under each svchost.exe process.
In XPHome - you'll have to use a freeware utility called Process Explorer by these folks: http://www.sysinternals.com
It'll let you see what's running there!
FYI - iexplore.exe is the process that Internet Explorer uses. Mine is using 2,832 K and is just sitting on http://www.google.com
. I recall seeing as high as 16,000 K when I used it regularly. Generally, for each Internet Explorer window that's open, there should be a process for it. The size in K depends on what stuff is in the page that you're viewing.
explorer.exe is using 18,684 K on my system. It's the process that runs Windows - and it runs Windows Explorer (and all the stuff that looks like it in other applications (like search, save as, etc). Generally there is only one shown, even if you open multiple things that use it (there is an option to use more than one - but I've never liked it). Should you ever get an instance of Windows Explorer that locks up on you - if you terminate the process - your Desktop will vanish also!
It's OK tho' - as long as your system is running right, it'll reload itself and all will be well.
