When I was working with win 2000 advanced server, suddenly it became slower and I started checking the running processes using task manager and I found 4 svchost.exe are running and one of them with PID:916 was using 38000K memory. After sometime the server became normal and everything is OK now. But my question is why there are 4 svchost.exe? It was not there earlier. Is it something wrong with the system?
The system has SP4, Windows defender, Adware remover and Spybot installed on this. All 4 svchost.exe have PIDs 916, 832, 496 and 436.
I would appreciate your advice on this. Thanks
