Use static IP addresses. Do not DHCP from the router. Still use the same DNS and gateway. Just specify an IP address for each one, preferably not in the DHCP range used on the router.

Everytime i open my computer, ah pop-up windows say's WINDOWS CANNOT FIND SCVHOST.EXE


Hi,

First, I'll let you know what's going on, then I'm going to post from Microsoft, what svchost.exe does, and how to find out where the problem is. I can help you further if you need it.

Svchost.exe is a program in WIndows XP Pro that will start services in your computer during startup. It sounds like you have deleted a program and "service host" is still looking for it to open on startup. This can happen if the program was removed without using the correct removal procedures. It is still listed in the registry and your computer is still trying to access it. DO NOT edit your registry unless you know what you are doing. You could create a catastrophic failure of Windows. There are programs that will remove registry entries if those entries are no longer valod. You can fing a free program for this function at web sites like www.nonags.com

Following is information from the Microsoft web site:

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 following registry key, whose Parameters key contains a ServiceDLL value: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Service To view the list of services that are running in Svchost:
  1. Click Start on the Windows taskbar, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type CMD, and then press ENTER.
  3. Type Tasklist /SVC, and then press ENTER.
Tasklist displays a list of active processes. The /SVC switch shows the list of active services in each process. For more information about a process, type the following command, and then press ENTER: Tasklist /FI "PID eq processID" (with the quotation marks) The following example of Tasklist output shows two instances of Svchost.exe that are running. Image Name PID Services
========================================================================
System Process 0 N/A
System 8 N/A
Smss.exe 132 N/A
Csrss.exe 160 N/A

The registry setting for the two groupings for this example are as follows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Svchost:

I have deleted svchost.exe accidently from windows xp and cannot now log onto windows. I have tried expanding the file from dos however still cannot log on


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.

Svchost


"Svchost.exe" (Generic Host Process for Win32 Services) is an integral part of Windows OS. It cannot be stopped or restarted manually. It manages 32-bit DLLs and other services. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services portion of the registry to construct a list of services that it needs to load. In normal conditions multiple instances of Svchost.exe run at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services, so that separate services can be run depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This allows for better control and debugging. The svchost.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. In other cases, svchost.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! To detect if it's a virus sometimes it will add letters to the Svchost to read thus SSVCHOST or SVCCHOST or something like that, thus making multiple services to run and slow down the computer, if that is the case the current antivirus you are using is not removing the virus, this can be done in the registry, its a complicated process if you do not know how to do it, so i would suggest you purchase a registry cleaner. NOTE: remember to backup the registry before you clean it
