I keep getting these - no firewalls. Once I click send or don't send, apps
will longer launch.

Generic Host Process for Win32 Services encountered a problem and needed to
close.

Svchost.exe is a kind of "helper" program that lets DLL files run as
executables when running as a service.

As a first step I would download and run either Spybot S&D or Ad-Aware
(prefeabley both) to scan for and remove Spyware/Malware. Then see how
things run after that. I would also, after you have done that,...make sure
you AV software is fully updated and do a full scan of the machine.

Chances are, once the machine is "clean" the problem will go away.

Obtain McAfee's virus and worm removal tool, Stinger: http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/

1) Disable System Restore
http://vil.nai.com/vil/SystemHelpDocs/DisableSysRestore...
2) Reboot your PC into Safe Mode
3) Using McAfee Stinger, perform a Full Scan of your platform and clean/delete any
infectors found
4) Restart your PC and perform a "final" Full Scan of your platform
5) Re-enable System Restore and re-apply any System Restore preferences,
(e.g. HD space to use suggested 400 ~ 600MB),
6) Reboot your PC.
7) Create a new Restore point

If Stinger indicates nothing, please try several of the following online scanners

Thanks Phil - but I have already run AdAware, Spybot, TrendMicro, and NAV.
In safe mode too.

I can't find anything else on that. Did you click on the link given in the
error?...you have to click on it in the error popup error itself,...clicking
on it in this email won't help.

Hi.
I was led to believe that SVCHOST.EXE was a backdoor for hackers and that it
could rip and upload personal data such as credit card details to it's
creator. My Registry and running Processes are infested with SVCHOST.EXE. I
have tried many methods to remove it. So I am now going to read others in
this forum and if any help is appropriate, give it a try and post results.
If any one has any other advice on this issue please email:
lloydcodrington@hotmail.com.

Thanks all,
Lloyd.

Lloyd:

SVCHOST.EXE is a legitimate component of WinXP. However, it is the target of many viral and
non-viral malware. In addition, many viral and non-viral malware may variations of that
name such as SCVHOST.EXE.

It is still gives me "nightmares" trying to figure out which application
/ service is using it <g>.

One is currently not closing down and being booted off by uphclean. I
can't figure out what is starting it! I have tried Process Explorer.

Do you have tasklist? (Part of XP Pro but also I think available
for XP Home users too, perhaps in their Support Tools package.)

Open a command window and enter:

tasklist /svc /fi "Imagename eq svchost.exe"

or, for a particular task, get its PID (represented by xxxx below)
and enter:

tasklist /svc /fi "PID eq xxxx"

You can also get more clues from the list of modules that task is using:

tasklist /M /fi "PID eq xxxx"
