I posted a forum topic about this months ago. I thought the problem was fixed but it came back. My computer going screwy again. I scan my computer for viruses everyday. When the error popped up, I did system restores about 6 times, but still won't fix the problem. I think I have a virus that my virus scan didn't pick up. I am running out of options my last plan is a full restore back to factory default. But SVChost.exe is stopping my backup efforts. Help!!!!!
what anti-virus do you have?
have you tried scanning for viruses in safe mode? if that doesn't help than indeed your last resort might be system restore but remember to restore from a dvd/cd that came with your computer (and not by "control panel/ restore") or if it's a custom built reinstall xp on a formated drive.
SVChost.exe will freeze up any burning software and won't let me backup. I might ask my friend to let me borrow his external until I get this thing together. I use AVG Free Edition as anti virus. I have Windows Defender for spyware but I will try Spybot for extra.
Ok, I ran spybot, ad-aware, virus scans, I cleaned out my registry with Ace Utilites. I am trying AVG Anti Root-Kit now and SVChost.exe is still having error. Yet, on the error you can click Cancel to debug it and it's not affecting the computer.
