Boot from your Windows XP disk and use recovery console, follow the onscreen stuff and put the admin password in that you setup when you installed windows, you should now be at a prompt EXAMPLE: C:\WINDOWS>

At the end of the prompt type: cd F:\I386
F is the letter of the drive where your XP disk is so you will need to change it to your drive letter. The prompt should now be F:\I386>

After the prompt type: Expand svchost.ex_ C:\windows\system32
C is the letter of you HD were windows XP is installed, needs to be changed accordingly. At the prompt type: exit
Your sytem will re-boot and you will now have a copy of svchost.exe in your system32 folder again.

If you have found this solution helpful please rate it as Solved, otherwise please ask again.

Thank you

Scvhost.exe driver not redy..please solution


Glad to help YOU!

The svchost.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32.
On STARTUP Svchost.exe checks the services portion of the registry and constructs a list of services that it needs to load. Usually multiple instances of Svchost.exe will be running simultaneously. If the process svchost.exe uses high CPU resources it is mostly due because Windows Operating System is downloading some updates.
WARNING: A 100% CPU usage could lead to the presumption of a hidden malware on your computer!!! Same for the message that you got: "scvhost.exe driver not ready"...
I'd suggest you to do a SPYWARE/MALWARE scan AS SOON AS POSSIBLE and AS DEEP AS POSSIBLE!!!


GOOD LUCK!

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 />

How to beat cmapp


The reason why you cannot remove this file is because the file is active under Windows.
If you know the location of this file and its extension, then boot up in DOS mode and use the dos CD command to go to the directory where the cmapp file is location and use the dos DEL command to delete this file.

Hi,
The virus that cause in action in these system file's is using up of pen-drive's without running an anti-virus check before accessing it,if people's use pen-drive's in like internet cafe's or anything like that.You can wipe it of if you know how exactly find the file in the registry.(The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUP.).I personally recommend to use Avira Ant-virus or Kaspersky works well and don't slow down the system.

Can't open file.


Check Hemera settings and ensure that the path for the picture files is the right one, where files are stored.

Hemera usually reads the picture files from CD/DVD unit, if your system had renamed the DVD form D:\ to E:\, for example , then Emera wont be able to find files anymore.

Solutions to this problem.

Check file source folder on Hemera settings, and assign the right CD path.

Do a system restore to a date before having the problem.

If still no luck, then Windows may be corrupted, in that case , the standard procedure is reinstalling Windows, then reinstalling Hemera, and the rest of the software.

Anti virus 2009


This is known as a non intrusive advertisement trojan, and it's near impossible to get rid of. The reason is that when this invades your machine it places several inactive copies of itself throughout the computer. When you stop one, the others are basically notified, and one or two more will open and leave several more, but not all of them will open. After a couple of months the number is exponential. Most anti viruses won't find them because they are non intrusive, laying dormant, or are in files that aren't scanned on a regular basis, ie... picture files, screen savers, music, etc... The only sure way that I've found to get rid of them is to completely wipe the hard drive, reformat, and reinstall the operating system.
