Multiple "svchost.exe" in Newly Loaded Windows XP
Posted on 2004-09-21
I just purchased a new harddrive for my laptop, due to so many problems on my current harddrive. I loaded windows XP onto it and I am trying to be very observant and cautious as "running tasks". I am sick and tired of Virus' and adware and want to do everything possible to prevent it and to keep my computer from clogging up.
On a newly loaded windows XP "running tasks" are:
System idle process
I guess that my questions is why are there multiple svchost.exe in the process category, Can I get rid of the duplicates and how do I get rid of the duplicates??????? Also are there any other processes that can be deleted such as those regarding help___.exe????
Thanks John Bayless, My First Question, More to come, 52 YO, and my history goes back to XT, 286s & 386s and I am trying to get a handle on XP.
