  1. Multiple instances of any browser I open showing in task manager


    When I open any browser, multiple instances of that browser display in task manager. Whether it is Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Firefox I open the browser (one tab is open) and task manager shows the browser at least nine times, while browsing the number increases to as many as 20, which obviously slows down my system quite a bit.


    I ran scannow which found corrupted files which it was unable to repair automatically;


    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17134.407]

    (c) 2018 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.



    C:\WINDOWS\system32>sfc /scannow



    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.



    Beginning verification phase of system scan.

    Verification 100% complete.



    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.

    For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at

    windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline

    repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.



    The system file repair changes will take effect after the next reboot.



    C:\WINDOWS\system32>



    Would appreciate any help repairing these issues


    Eric

  2. MS Edge showing up multiple times in Task Manager

    I purchased a new laptop about two weeks ago on Win 10, 12 GB memory. When I use MS Edge, multiple instances show up in Task Manager even when I have only one tab (and only one instance of Edge running). The first shows up in Apps, but I have 4 other instances
    totaling almost 500 MB under background processes. Same thing when I try Google Chrome, but with Chrome (again only one tab, one instance), I have 17 (!!) instances under background processes totalling almost 400 MB. Why do so many instances of either browser
    show up and can/should I end some of these processes to free up memory? Right now with Outlook, Edge, iTunes, and of course Task Manager, I'm at 40% memory. That seems awfully high for only four programs running.

  3. Multiple instances are running for Svchost.exe in Windows 10 task manager

    Hello Bane,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    We understand the inconvenience you have experienced.

    Svchost.exe is a process on your computer that hosts, or contains, other individual services that Windows uses to perform various functions. For example, Windows Defender uses a service that is hosted by a svchost.exe process.

    There can be multiple instances of svchost.exe running on your computer, with each instance containing different services. One instance of svchost.exe might host a single service for a program, and another instance might host several services related to
    Windows. You can use Task Manager to view which services are running under each instance of svchost.exe.

    Open Task Manager by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC, then right-click an instance of
    svchost.exe in Details tab, and then click
    Go to Service(s). The services associated with the process are highlighted on the
    Services tab.

    Also suggest you to go for a complete system scan with Windows Defender or with any available Antivirus Software to make sure no virus is causing this issue. The

    Microsoft Safety Scanner
    is a free downloadable security tool that provides on-demand scanning and helps remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software. Do scan your PC by downloading Microsoft Safety
    Scanner.

    Keep us posted if you require further assistance.
