Try to define what is running.

Description of Svchost.exe: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q250/3/20.ASP Default Processes in Windows 2000:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q263/2/01.ASP

For a list of running tasks, open a command prompt, and type:
netstat -ano
then:
tasklist /svc
(compare the PID of the tasks)

task manager and services.msc can show you what services might be involved.
