If you open a command prompt windows and type in:-

tasklist /svc /FI "IMAGENAME eq svchost.exe"


This will show you what has started each incidence of svchost.

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.
 
 

FWIW:
I have 10 instances of svchost running at present, mostly connected with my audio and Lan. They are currently using 220 mbs so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Get rid of Mcafee and install Microsoft Security Essential.
