I keep getting this error message every time I start up my computer. I have to press 'cancel' or if I click 'OK,' then my computer will do absolutely nothing and I have to manually shut down the computer.

As far as I know, this is some sort of hexadecimal thing, but I'm not quite the technical type.

I have XP Professional, and I have used numerous antivirus and antispyware software to see if it was some sort of Trojan or Worm, or something like that. It's really starting to get to my nerves.

What kind of error/s are showing up in the Event Viewer at these times?

Start> rightclick on Manage> Event Viewer. Click on System in the Event Viewer. Error will appear as red dots with a white X inside it, these will be found in the left hand margin. Each column is titled at the top of each one, the column you are going to look for is Event, there will be numbers only in this column. When you see an error trace it across the page to the Event column, if you right click on this number a drop menu will appear, click on properties. The page that opens will have a description of the error. Please post the number in the Event column and the description.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

The suggested work around by Microsoft is to reinstall Internet Explorer.

I've already reseted Internet Explorer.

I just restarted my computer, but I still get this svchost.exe error.

I found a related post by the OP, http://forums.g4tv.com/thread.jspa?threadI...59&tstart=0, which may be of some value in attempting to troubleshoot system issues.

lol, actually that thread is actually mine. I posted there to see if the G4 Tech Support could help. So I decided to go here to see if this place could give me more help.

EDIT: Oh, so you knew. Well, yeah, I went there first to see if I could find some help. But I didn't get that much help there. I was stuck.

Angry-J,

I see you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.
You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM.
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
