Mutiple same processes running

This has bugged me for like forever. When doing several jobs using clonedvd2 or mobile, when I check task manager there multiple instances of them reported by TM. I have at times saw half a dozen at once and unless I reboot or delete them manually from TM the program will eventually not even load. TM is reporting 1300-1700 k in each instance but is not listed in applications running. Any thoughts.:rolleyes:
