After logging in XP the computer says that It can not find C:\windows\system32\svchost.exe nor in the registry....
when I do a search in XP I see that the file is located in the system32 folder, but I dont know if it is in the registry or not.

Also, my computer does not have sound...I am not sure why. it just stopped. Quite strange. not a blown speaker because I have tried different ones.

Anyway, I hope that you can help. please let me know if you need anything else. I appreciate it!!!
(please let me know if you want a hijackthis log...I can get that to you too)

Thanks alot, I hope that you can help.
