Restore it to the last good restore point, which should be yesterday, unless the files were all done today, you shouldn't loose anything other than the last day. Did you just try powering off by pulling the plug, and trying to restart. That should be the first thing you do. It may just have locked up, it happens. If you do implement the restore feature you can always undo it, It allows you to "undo last restore" so you have nothing to lose. If you can get into safe mode and run a spyware and virus program, you should be ok, otherwise, you can try the "repair" option in windows. If you have the recovery disks. Windows will also let you run chkdsk in safe mode which is sucessful about half the trime. You need to make a decision either way. If you "backed up" the drive you can get it all back, if not, then it's either try some of the suggestions here or take it to a repair store. I will tell you right now, that the repair store, "geek squad" or whoever, is going to tell you that they can't save the files, first of all they aren't trained to, and secondlly it will take too much time and effort for them to put into saving them. There are programs like "get data back" that I have on my machine, that will get unreadable data off of just about and drive deleted or not. It is forensic quality. But unless the stuff is ireplacable I would advise you against starting on a quest that is going to cost you a lot of money. It will cost you more than the computer cost. So try some of the suggestions and just keep letting us know where you are at, so we can try to help you through this, we do this because we like to help people, so the advise you get is going to be much more honest than a repair shop that sees you as a person in a position of weakness, because you now are relying on them to save you. Good luck and keep us informed

Have you recently deleted a program?
Usually this happens when a program is in the startup Queue, but cannot be found on your PC.
Click start - RUN - type MSCONFIG
Under the STARTUP tab - un-check anything that is checked except antivirus software.
These are programs you have slated to run in the background at startup.
None are necessary except antivirus.
If you need additional ones also running - follow the same procedure and one by one add the programs with a restart to see if that is the program in question.
If you cannot get to the start menu after windows starts.... during startup press F8 (usually) and select "start in safe mode". safe mode" does essentially the same as i described above - it does not allow any programs to load except windows.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi, this is a virus. most viruses us this svchost tag to make it look like its normal procedure but, in reality, it has token over your PC. i recommend clearing the partitions and restoring the entire system with a recovery disk. this is the only way to defeat this issue. you can try to use the system restore option but i doubt if the virus will let you access that feature. the best way is to insert a window OS disk and restart the CPU or, use the recovery disk that your PC was shipped with to bring back order.

How to remove the scvhost.exe Virus.


Svchost.exe is the name of a generic host process for services that run from dynamic link libraries (DLLs). A variety of worm malware programs spread a similarly named file <b>Scvhost.exe </b>via Yahoo! Messenger that blocks the Task Manager and Registry Editor, as well as use of the command prompt.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Warning</u></b><br /> Manual removal of Scvhost.exe may be very difficult as the removal process requires knowledge of the Operating System's command prompt and Registry Editor. If not performed properly, your computer system might experience permanent damage. Consequently, manual removal might be best for experienced users. Less experienced users might want to consider using an automatic spyware removal application, such as that offered by Trend Micro. This worm duplicates itself to different locations of shared folders. The duplicated program uses a folder icon that has an .exe file extension. DO NOT double click on any of these folders.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Follow these step by step instructions to remove the scvhost.exe virus.</u></b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 1 (Turning off System Restore)</u></b><br /> This is so that if you ever need to use System Restore after you have removed the virus, it doesn't restore the virus aswell.<br /> <br /> If the operating system of the infected computer is either Windows Me or Windows XP, turn off System Restore while this fix is being implemented. To turn off System Restore within Windows Me, click <b>Start &gt; Settings &gt; Control Panel</b>. Double-click <b>System</b>. Select F<b>ile System</b> from the Performance tab. Left click the <b>Troubleshooting</b> tab and check the <b>Disable System Restore</b> box. Click <b>OK</b>. <br />To turn off System Restore within Windows XP, log in as Administrator and click <b>Start</b>. Right click <b>My Computer</b>" and select <b>Properties</b> from the shortcut menu. Check the <b>Turn off System Restore</b> option for each drive on the System Restore tab. Left click <b>Apply</b> and <b>Yes</b> to confirm when prompted. Click <b>OK</b>.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 2 (Run in safe mode)</u></b><br /> Restart your computer in Safe Mode and log in as Administrator. Press <b>F8</b> after the first beep occurs during start up, before the display of the Microsoft Windows logo. Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode from the selection menu.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 3 (Accessing Command prompt)</u></b><br /> Access the command prompt. Click <b>Start &gt; Run</b>. Type <b>cmd</b>. Click <b>OK</b>. Then in the command prompt type <b>cd </b>to<b> </b>change directory then press the space bar. <br />Type the name of the full directory path of the folder containing your Windows system files. It will be either <b>C:\Windows\System </b>or<b> C:\Windows\System 32</b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 4</u></b><br /> From the command prompt, type the following to unprotect the files for removal:<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s scvhost.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s blastclnnn.exe </b>and press<b> "Enter</b>;<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 5</u></b><br /> Delete the files by typing the following from the command prompt:<br /><b>del scvhost.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del blastclnnn.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del autorun.ini</b> and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 6</u></b><br /> Type "<b>cd\</b>" to return to the main Windows directory.<br />Unprotect and delete the Autorun.inf file by typing the following from the Windows directory command prompt:<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del</b> <b>autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br />Type <b>regedit</b> and press <b>Enter</b> to open the Registry Editor.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 7</u></b><br /> Locate the following entry:<br /><b>HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run</b>.<br />Delete the incorrectly spelled Yahoo! Messenger entry with the value<br /><b>c:\windows\system32\scvhost.exe.</b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 8</u></b><br /> Locate the following key:<br /><b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon</b>.<br />Within the key, there is a <b>shell</b> entry with the value of <b>explorer.exe, scvhost.exe</b>. Edit the entry to remove the reference to Scvhost.exe, leaving Explorer.exe as the remaining value in the registry entry.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 9</u></b><br /> Locate the following key:<br /><b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE&gt;SYSTEM&gt;CurrentControlSet&gt;Services&gt;<br /></b>Delete the following subkeys from the left panel:<br /><b>RpcPatch</b><br /><b>RpcTftpd <br /></b>Exit the command prompt and return to the operating system. Type <b>Exit</b>, and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 10</u></b><br /> Reboot the PC.<br />If Scvhost.exe still resides on the computer, repeat these steps or try using an automatic removal program from McAfee or Symantec.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

Application popup: svchost.exe - Application Error : The instruction at "0x745f2780" referenced memory at "0x00000070". The memory could not be "read". Help me to rectify this...


this is a common error if you try to install a new memory card or if you are infected by a virus. if you tried to install/upgraded a new memory card. these are the thing you need to consider - memory card is not properly installed to the memory slot - memory card is not compatible to the system - if you added a new memory card it means that there is a conflict between the old and new memory card
if you did not install/upgraded a new memory card. these are the things you need to consider - you are infected by a worm/virus. try updating your system by installing system updates. install antivirus software - you might install a software that is having an issue with the memory installed in your system. - Operating system is corrupted need to reinstall the OS. - hardware failure try to check first the memory card then hard disk. or just contact local technician.

Hello there,
First things firsk friend.
1)Did you ever change your RAMs? if so, take it out and just put one to work.
2) If you do a backup OS system before using your laptop? if not you have to reinstall all, from recovery partition at this point.
3) Use default BIOS settings.

Desktop will not load, cannot get to taskbar, start menu, icons


You would have to use an upgrade verison of WME and what is sad Microsoft does not offer this in an upgrade. In order to retain your data you may have to upgrade to Vista Home premium, I know I have said a bad thing, but your choices are slim to none. If you were able to retrieve WME disk and reload you would have to go through an extensive process and need Administrator level of access, if not Windows will want to wipe your machine and restart anew. Here's some links for info. I hope this was helpful.

Svchost.exe problem


Turn off your computer and remove the cover. Ground yourself first and make sure no power plugs are still connected. Find your memory cards and remove them from the motherboard. Then reinsert them. Connect everything back and start the computer. If the problem still persists. Then your operating system is corrupted and you might have to re-install windows. I hope this helps.

svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries.

Sounds like a driver or application problem you have. As you get this when you connect to the internet, sounds like your web browser. Try reinstalling it

Help and support center


Girish,

Open the taskmanager and click the processes tab and look for these processes and end them if they are running.

  • helpsvc.exe
  • helphost.exe
  • helpctr.exe

  • Close your taskmanager and go to start, run and type CMD you will now have the command box open you will need to type each of these lines and hit enter after.

    net stop helpsvc
    cd /d %windir%\pchealth\helpctr
    rd packagestore /s /q
    rd installedskus /s /q
    cd binaries
    start /w helpsvc /svchost netsvcs /regserver /install
    start /w helpsvc /register

    The line "start /w helpsvc /svchost netsvcs /regserver /install
    " is what reinstalls the help and support service and may take a little while to run.
