On every computer i have used i've always seen svchost.exe occurs multiple times and one of those occurences is also usually the most processor hungry item on the system. Why?

Maybe this will shed some light on your question. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/list-services-running-under-svchostexe-process/

There is always more than one service under each and you should be able to narrow it down to a specific one.
