  1. Hi there! Could someone PLEASE help me? I have major problems with my XP PRO OS right now. I'm figuring it's a virus. I would like to attatch my HIJACK THIS logfile for your perusal. Thanks for reading this.

    You said to delete things with svchost.exe at the end. When i open task manager, i see 5 of those.... 3 coming from SYSTEM, 1 coming from LOCAL SERVICE, and the last one coming from NETWORK SERVICE. Should i be endng these processes?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    NO: I didn`t say to delete things with svchost.exe at the end.

    I said to delete this specific instance of svchost.exe.

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\svchost.exe

    Those instructions were for lkwdguy74 only.

    If you`re having a problem with viruses/malware etc. Go HERE and follow all the instructions exactly.

    Then, open a new thread in this forum and post a fresh HJT log. Only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
