hi all, i have a dell inspiron 5100 laptop, in the last few days ive been recieving error messages which say "svchost.exe - application error, The instruction at "0x75606eb5" referenced memory at "0x00000008". the memory could not be "read". Click on ok to terminate the program" sometimes the numbers are different, depending on which program is tryng to run etc ,also my internet explorer or firefox wouldnt connect (although my wireless connection looked fine). restarted (which im told wasnt a good move?) managed to get a net connection but only to certan websites, eg. i could get google but if i clcked any links it went to pages lke stopzilla etc, also my browsers r set to open a new tab on clicking a link but it kept opening new browsers, also for some reason the language bar keeps appearing in wierd places (i never usually have the language bar on) I cant get any of my antivirus or antimalware programs to update, i cant get my windows firewall to switch on, it wont start in any safe mode apart from "safe mode with networking" ive scanned with agv, comodo, mbam, spybot and adaware and nothing is coming up. hmm... i think thats it for symptoms ....aargh!
if someone could help me id very much appreciate it, ive done most of the things suggested on other forums etc (including running the symantec w32.welchia.worm remover and the w32.sasser.worm remover, to no avail) im lost!
as i speak i now have no net connection on the machine.
Im running xp pro, up to date with updates,
was using comodo, but now using agv, i have adaware, spybot, HJT & malwarebytes.
Thanks in advance
