This may be because of the corrupt files or due to an virus infection, how ever you can fix this problem by replacing the corrupted files with clean system files. For this you require a OS cd. Follow the instructions below.
This process is called System File Checker(SFC)
1. Go to Start, then to Run, and type in " SFC.EXE /SCANNOW " ( only text in bold) press Enter.
2. This would ask you to insert the Windows XP / Vista Installation CD.
If problem still persists, feel free to revert back.
Try a complete uninstall: Unplug the USB cable from your PC. Go to Control panel add or remove programs. and delete all the entries you see for HP.( If it promts a restart do not restart now) Then open my computer> C:drive> Program files> and delete the HP Folder only (not Hewlett Packard) Then Open C:drive> Program files> Common Files and then delete HP and Hewlett Packard folder. Then Go to C:Drive> Windows> Temp and empty the temp folder as much as you can. Then go to Recycle bin and empty recycle bin. Then Insert the All-In-One CD and cancel the installation process. Open the content of the CD> and open Util folder> Then CCC> Then click on Uninstall_L4 and follow the on screen process. After all restart the computer.

svchost.exe is a system file, and it seems this file has got corrupted some how.
Try this, if u have the install CD of the OS, try boot from the CD
and go for new installation, in the final Partition selection part u will get a OS repair option. Press R and the system will repair the corrupted files to its original.
Then go for a full virus scan with an updated antivirus utility.
