It's normal. The svchost.exe starts to Host a Service that your PC requires. Hence its name....

Got 14 running at the moment.

It's normal to have multiple svchost.exe instances running at the same time. Just make sure you check the spelling (svchost and not scvhost). Also if in doubt, you can check it out on this website click here
