Please search your registry for this exact string. Copy and paste it to your search parameter.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\svdhost.exe

If you have this, it is a Trojan Virus and you need to act quickly to remove it.

It's an oldie, so most good antivirus programs and anti-rootkits should save you.

Other forms of LP5 may be genuine and related to Zip file problems from genuine programs, and are simply corrupted, but somehow I doubt this is the case.

    PS: you should also check for these variants of the virus: -



    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Updates] svdhost.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Updates] svdhost.exe

  • Scoee Scoffer Jan 15, 2010

    ADDENDUM. A simpler search in XP would be to just type in: -



    svdhost



    Ensure you enable search for hidden and system items too.



    deleting all svdhost related files may help too.

Error while unpacking program, code LP5,please report to author.


It seems to be caused by interference from other applications running on the computer such as AV products. It may also be possible that this Ceedo product you are using is the cause of the problems. Any extra info about how you are trying to run KeyboardTest could help us in troubleshooting the problem.


FACTS ABOUT CODE LP5:
  • Programs as "packed" to reduce space, stop hacking and help prevent pirating of the software.
  • Good packing software is hard to write. So packing is often done using external software protection applications. One of these packages is "Armadillo" from Silicon Realms. Now called Software passport.
  • Protected programs are "unpacked" each time you run them. Normally this is not problem and you never notice it happening. When things go wrong during this process you get the LP5 message like, "Error while unpacking program, code LP5. Please report to author".
  • Only Silicon Realms really know what LP5 stands for. But it is enough to know that unpacking failed.
  • Sometimes, very rarely, you get a corrupted download that prevents correct unpacking of the software. The solution here is to get a new download package.
  • Also, very rarely, there is 3rd party software running on the same machine that interferes with the correct operation of the packed application. We saw this when CA's Antispyware had a bug that messed things up. The solution here is to identify the application causing the problem and uninstall it or get the bug fixed. Which is what we did for our software.
Please vote if this post helps you in anyway.
