  • Windows Problems

    Hello earthlings,

    It has become apparent that a bug has found it's way into my computer. I'm running Windows 2000 Professional, and this file is affecting every program I run. Even Internet Explorer and my Dial-Up connection status box.

    It's a Window's service file named svchost.exe, after a few minutes of the computer being turned on, an error message pops up informing me of an error it is experiencing. Once I click OK, or CANCEL to debug, whichever button, the errors start.

    No errors happen before this error box appears.

    Thankyou,

    Alcar...

    Try looking into the RPC and Blaster Virus threads. If anything, it sounds like it MIGHT be the RPC Threat.

      It almost certainly is, given that svchost is directly related to good ol' RPC.

        Install a firewall. I recommend ZoneAlarm.

            ZoneAlarm is ineffective against this particular vulnerability.

                Hmmm, thankyou, but it comes up with an error message saying something along the lines of: "The version of Windows you have installed does not match the update you are trying to install".

                    Also, this might be a trojan... Some backdoors disguise themselves as SVCHOST.exe Try killing the smallest SVCHOST running.
