The Svchost.exe file is located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services portion of the registry to construct a list of services that it needs to load. Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services, so that separate services can run, depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This allows for better control and easier debugging.

I had some problems with "scvhost" = virus (not svchost) and since then I'm obsessed with any file that looks like it.When I saw 5 processes of svchost I really wanted to know more about it.
Anyway,thanks for infos.
