Cent os 4 spawing multiple threads

I noticed in process manager cent os 4 generates multiple threads for some applications,so there can be up to 9 processes of same application
Is it possible to do that same as on cent os 5 where is only one process?It seems this causing memory usage multiplication, so instead memory usage 7 its 7x9=63 memory usage.

Only way I know to change such basic behavior would be to upgrade to CentOS 5, but it also often runs multiple threads. As you haven't specified what applications/services you are talking about, specific advice is not possible.
