it's a windows thing for running applications. Basically the processor can't do two things at once. But it can do like two things very quickly in sucession, so that's where a programming thing called multi-threading comes into play and different processes and services. SVCHost makes sure everything plays nice and gets appropriate processor time.

Processes can be named svchost without being a real one though. 7 is not unreasonable. I have 6. I think that they should all be being run by the system, not any individual user. Could be wrong on that one though.
