Global Moderator, boopme, is helping remove a virus on my computer. He suggested I check here to confirm a question with mulitple svhost.exe in Windows 7.

The computer runs and runs so I check the task manager, and I have several svhost.exe running.

Some say localserviceandNoImpresonation, LocalServicePeerNet, NetworkService,netsvcs.

Some are allowed, restricted and some are not restricted in the firewall status.

I can show you the list if that will help. Seems there are lots of duplicate and variations.

I am trying to determine if it is normal to have multiple svhost.exe running or if this is part of virus.

Please let me know if you need more info.

Thank you!
