    Thank you for your help:- I noticed an error below in my original request e.g quoting scvhost.exe which I know is a bug - sorry for misleading. I understand that although memory draining they are required by windows. The following link from others was very helpful in case anybody else asks and it noted all the 3 occurances I had. http://www.ss64.com/ntsyntax/services.html Thank you Jessica

    Jessica, They seem to be OK, although many. At this very moment I have 8 fairly heavy-duty programs running at the same time, of which 6 have connected to the internet as well and are fairly busy. According to the task manager i have 3 instances of svchost. Catch my drift? If possible have an expert they for all security. By the way what is your memory problem? Robert
