    It is not multiple copies of the same thing.
    It is a host progam for many different groups of services.
    In Vista it is easy to find out what is actually behind each svchost

    On the Task Manger process tab right click on a svchost entry and
    click 'go to service(s)' and you will be taken to the services tab but
    you will see that a number of services are highlighted. Each of these
    services in running in that given svchost entry.
