Try this tool ProcessLibrary.com Quick Access from http://www.processlibrary.com/quickaccess/

This will help you identify what processes do what.

Hope this helps

For what I have learned about controlling processes with URLs of useful tools and informational sites, see my Vox: http://doc1101.vox.com/ To visit the "links" copy and paste to your browser address bar in a new tab.

Have several svchosts running at the same time is normal for Windows computers. A good approach to managing the processes is to ask yourself "what don't I need running." It is fairly easy to review what applications launch themselves on startup against the BC StartupList tabbed at the top of the BC page, and "kill" any of them that you don't really need.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
