I just installed the Creator's Update and noticed that each Service Host Processes no longer seems to include numerous services as before.  If my count is correct, there are 70 Service Host Processes running as I speak.  Is this something new or is there a problem with my installation?

I didn't bother trying to do an accurate count of all of the Service Host processes under the Windows Processes section, but there are many on my machine, with a couple of them having duplicate names (which is no surprise).

 

I believe there is now a trend toward direct enumeration rather than nesting under a single group.  If your machine isn't misbehaving I wouldn't worry about it.  Mine certainly hasn't been, and I upgraded on first day of availability so that I could try to anticipate what my clients might end up calling me about when Creators Update hits their machines.

Ths first became apparent from the amount of vertical space being used by Process Explorer.  It now requires much more scrolling from top to bottom.

This is intended behaviour on the Creator's update. If you have enough memory the creators update will run each payload separately. It will still combine multiple processess into a single service host instance if you don't have enough memory (I think that I read the cutover point is 3.5GB).
