after scanning this hdd for virus, i attached the hdd back into its own pc
and upon restart, got the following message under the heading

"c:\windows\system32\svohost.exe"
'windows cannot find c:\windoes\system32\svohost.exe. make sure you type the
name correctly and then try again. to search for a file....'

i did a search by typing 'svohost.exe' and it give me the following result.
-found in folder c:\windows\prefetch
svohost.exe-2FA3EB46.pf

i updated the windows but the mesage still appears. (i have many other
sotware programs in the pc and do not wish to re-install them.) i have the
Product Recvery CD. your prompt advice what shall i do next is much
appreciated. many thanks
