I think that's an XP thing. Win 7 doesn't have that for me (just checked).

Yeah, I was concerned about that a couple of years back, when I had XP, so I checked and apparently it shouldn't be a problem. The main thing to look out for is memory usage. For instance, mixer.exe often goes crazy on the mem so I would always close it down.

Another thing, some viruses like to camouflage themselves as common processes like svchost, so just check that that's not the case.

herfst1, if you choose "show processes from all users", you will see that it is indeed there in Windows 7 as well.

svchost is a core process that windows uses for many tasks. Sometimes you might see it consume most of the CPU cycles which could be due to Windows updates for example.
What you have in the screenshot is normal. Also note the username the service is running under.
