Problem with XP home edition, ecvhost.exe missing

go into safe mode , I think you hit either F5 or F8 during start up. You want safe mode with networking perhaps. From safe mode attempt a recovery to an earlier date when your machine was working.

I have just had microsoft security essentials upgrade come up, I dont use my computer a lot and wonder if I need this upgrade , I am still learning to use my computer and feel unsure about whether to...

these are usually updates for the Microsoft security features. If you have your own security features, you may opt not to install the updates, but if you use Microsoft security features, would be a good idea to let the update install.

Where i could download microsoft xp home edition

You can't. You will have to buy the disc somewhere. I recommend looking on ebay for one that does not have an installation key with it and then use your own key. If you are trying to re-install on a machine that has crashed, there will be a copy of the operating system on the recovery discs that came with the machine. If your don't have the recovery discs, you can get them from the manufacturer for about $15-$25.

0xc0070002 prblem occuring during installation and installaton close autmatically how i install it now

Either the system you are using is not supporting Windows XP home edition which is the case possible if you have bought your computer before the year 2002 or The installation disk you are using contains errors. These disk errors may be two types:-
*There may be some physical damage i.e. Some of the disk's optical flux may be destroyed.{You may get another copy of this disk}
*There may be some problem with the files of Windows, A usual problem with pirated disks and may be solved by buying an original copy of Windows Vista as licensed XP is no more available in the market!

If you felt that the solution was helpful then do rate me!!

U can install the windows in laptop also.. But with one condition that u do not connect the laptop to the internet.. If u want to connect means u have to turnoff the automatic updates in ur computer.. My best suggestion is u buy a laptop with preloaded OS.. Because Windows XP home edition will not support some options.. Better u buy a preloaded laptop..
