It depends what folders they are in.

Are you having problems with the computer?

Core Process Process Description

Csrss.exe1 An essential subsystem that is active at all times. Csrss.exe is the user-mode portion of the Windows subsystem and it maintains console windows and creates or deletes threads. Csrss stands for client/server run-time subsystem.

Services.exe1 The Service Control Manager can start, stop, and pause system services.

Svchost.exe1 A generic process that acts as a host for other processes running from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs). Multiple entries for this process might be present in the Task Manager list. For more information about Svchost.exe, see article 250320, "Description Of Svchost.exe," in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

the pc has been running slow, as if it has something running in the background. Ran the spy checkers and antivirus (scratchs head) so I thought I would check the running process's.

What is the full path to those files?
That'll determine whether they're legitimate, or not.

Search your hard drive for each file - it'll have the location in the search results (there may be several copies of each).

Generally, if the Microsoft Antispyware says they're OK - then they're OK (since they were designed by Microsoft and they know where they should be)

But it never hurts to be sure. And then you'll be forewarned if any of the bad one's do sneak onto your system.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
