Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I accidently deleted svchost.exe from doing a virus check. I now cannot lonto windows. I can log into my username and the system logs off again. I have tried expanding the file svchost.ex_ file in Dos and I get confirmation file has been expanded however I still cannot log into windows.
To complete part one, follow these steps:
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak

Your system should restore all damaged drivers when the recovey disk is used. You should be able to select repair or recovery from your OS install disk. I can't offer any more specific info, as I do not use XP, but this technique worked when my Windows Vista and Windows 7 PCs lost the boot manager

This is going to be a tough one to fix. since I don't know which svchost you have deleted from the system.
usually when that happen the only solution is to reinstall the OS. even try to fix it from the registry key, the key and the pointer will be there, but not the excution file, and there is not way which svchost control what services.
The Svchost.exe file is located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services part of the registry to construct a list of services that it must load. Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services. Therefore, separate services can run, depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This grouping of services allows for better control and easier debugging.
Svchost.exe groups are identified in the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\SvchostEach value under this key represents a separate Svchost group and appears as a separate instance when you are viewing active processes. Each value is a REG_MULTI_SZ value and contains the services that run under that Svchost group. Each Svchost group can contain one or more service names that are extracted from the registry key.
