    Hi,
    I've updated a machine and noticed that there's one less instance of svchost running. Most likely something to do with the recent bunch of WU. Anyone noticed, has anything wise to enlighten me?

    4 here on XP sp3 running on a LAN. 2 system, 1 local, 1 network. Pretty sure this is a reduction of 2.
