SOURCE: How to fix svchost.exe mdmp and appcompat.txt on PC?

There are many and various reasons for this. Without knowing your system configurations and all files on your PC, it may not be possible to accurwately pin this down. The main one concerns infected systems. Running a malware scan using a removal tool as listed in the link below may help but no guarantee.

svchost.exe mdmp is a known "worm" in some cases, but not a serious one. It will generate crashes with some programs and may invoke the good old but totally annoying and useless "Dr Watson" to get his stethoscope out and do absolutely nothing while U wait patiently for the Dr. to finsh doing nothing.

On a brighter note, appcompat.txt is just a text file log, hopefully in this case, about the program that crashed and the reason for the incompatibility. I suggest you open and read it. There may be another very simple explanation other than reviewing your system files one by one.

I'm receiving 2 messages from my webroot internet security essent


This sounds like a virus to me? you say you are receiving that message, please, is it Windows "Telling" you?, or some program "Telling" you? please clarify? svchost, is not something that should be deleting anything...Both TCIP & netbt are VERY important part of Windows, so I do NOT think, it should be allowed.

SVCHOST.exe is NOT a virus, however, it sounds like you do have a virus. SVCHOST is the program that operates your 'snap-ins' or 'services'. Services like .net runtime, DHCP client, DNS client, Messenger, netmeeting, Universal PNP and so forth. These services are part of embedded system modules and are the very heart of Windows 2K and higher, and the SVCHOST is the program that manages and operates them. If your SVCHOST is eating your resources, then its likely a corrupted service, (infected program launched by the host) or a fake service, starting and grinding the pc to a halt. in either case, your BEST option is to prepare to reformat your machine. Get your self a USB flash drive, launch in safe mode, and move your documents and data over to the drive as best as you can, then gather your system restore disks and wipe and reload your system. And once you do that, go straight to your antivirus manufacturers website and get the latest edition installed. Personally, I use AVAST HOME FREE Edition.

You got a virus. You will need to get rid of it, then install an anti-virus and anti-spyware solution.
I recommend Comodo Internet Security - it's free for home use and very good.

Generic Host for Win32 when installing IE7


you will have to format the drive in order to do this and do a clean instal. you will have to do a fdisk as well, it's the only way to get rid of vista and if the machine came with vista you may not be able to use all devices as vista drivers are only for vista.

1. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL and go to the processes tab

2. Look for svchost.exe under the image name. There will be many but look for the ones which have your username under the username

3. Press DEL to kill these files. It will give you a warning, Press Yes

4. Repeat for more svchost.exe files with your username and repeat. Do not kill svchost.exe with system, local service or network service!

5. Now open My Computer

6. In the address bar, type C:\heap41a and press enter. It is a hidden folder, and is not visible by default.

7. Delete all the files here

9. Now go to Start --> Run and type Regedit

10. Go to the menu Edit --> Find

11. Type "heap41a" here and press enter. You will get something like this "[winlogon] C:\heap41a\svchost.exe C:\heap(some number)\std.txt"

12. Select that and Press DEL. It will ask "Are you sure you wanna delete this value", click Yes

13. Now close the registry editor.

Now the virus is gone. But be sure to delete the autorun.inf file and any folder whose name ends with .exe in the pen drive.

Note: Make sure you have an updated antivirus running on your machine to avoid this issue.
