How to remove 'Listening' processes? TCPView.

There is a large group of processes shown as 'Listening' in TCPView.

I don't doubt they're security vulnerabilities as they're network-facing and consistently attending connections.

Could anyone recommend the correct actions to take within the OS to remove these processes?

Also, I've noticed there are two of certain processes listed such LSASS.exe and WININIT.exe. How to remove the duplicates and/or what do they indicate? Suspicious?

Finally, the processes marked as [System Process]. What is causing this output? It's annoying because it seems to be linked to processes that clearly display in TCPView, but cannot be controlled via the right-click menu.
