Sounds like you are running out of ram for the program. Try upgrading to some more ram in your system. Windows xp recommends minimum 512k of memory to run.

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
Winlogon.exe 180 N/A

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

Windows Startup Error csrss.exe


Okay, we are going to try two things. If the first don't work go to the second.

1) First perform a search on your computer for the 'csrss.exe' file. If found, copy it and then paste it into your C:\windows\system32 folder.
That should do it.

2) If that don't do it or your search can't find it, then perform the following;

To scan and verify the versions of all the system files that Windows File Protection protects, use the System File Checker (Sfc.exe) tool together with the /scannow parameter. If the SFC.exe tool detects that such a file was overwritten, the SFC.exe tool retrieves the correct version of the file from the Dllcache folder or from the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

To run SFC, please follow these steps:

1. Click on Start > Run command prompt
2. Type SFC /scannow, and then press ENTER

Note: You may be asked for inset OS CD.


3. After finishing SFC, you may run CHKDSK C: /R in the Run command prompt as well.

Zone Alarm will not start up when I turn on my computer?


Hi,
You can ADD the "Zone alarm" executable to your windows startup.
This can be done in 1 simple way.

1. Locate the "Zonealarm.exe" in your "Program files" folder. Usually your Program Files folder will be here "C:\Program Files". Just run a search for "Zonealarm.exe" inside this folder.

2. After locating the "Zonealarm.exe" file, right-click on that file. And select "Create Shortcut".

3. After that you'll find a "Zonealarm.exe" Shortcut file or icon inside the same folder.

4. Just COPY or CUT the shortcut file.

5. Now Right click on the "START" button.

6. Select "Open all users".

7. This will open a windows explorer window. Locate "Programs" folder and Enter it.

8. Inside you should locate "Startup" folder and enter it.

9. Once u ar inside the "Startup" folder, paste the already copied "Zonealarm.exe" shortcut file.

10. That's it. Now try re-starting the system.

Thanks

Funny UST scandal virus


Hello,

Right click My Computer, select Properties, choose System Restore and turn off SR on all drives.

Then, do all the manual removals you posted before. Then, go to this url:
http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
and run the full virus scan on all drives.

Because the files you note as infected are actually required by XP to run, you may not actually be able to go online, still try not to remove those files if possible, once they are removed you will have to restart your machine with the XP Disc and tell it to install, load any specific drivers needed such as those for your raid array if you have one, only when Setup tells you Windows is already installed, select Repair instead of New and Windows will heal your system.

So, because of those critical files being corrupted, don't be too surprised that when your online scan asks you to clean your system that your system freezes or halts at some point. Just be prepared with your Windows disc and Product Key.

I'll be available for any follow up questions you may have just comment back to me by clicking on my user name and then Ask Me.

Regards,
Worldvet
