:thumbup2: SO I'M HAVING THIS SVCHOST.EXE ISSUE RIGHT I'VE BEEN TO EVERY SITE AND FORUM THAT I CAN FIND AND THEY ALL GIVE ME THE SAME 2 ANSWERS. HERE ARE THE SOME OF THE ISSUES I'M HAVING: OTHER THAN THE MASS SPAMMING OF SVCHOST.EXE APPLICATION ERROR BOXS, I ALSO HAVE NO SOUND, I'M UNABLE TO JUST LEFT CLICK ON AN ICON I HAVE TO RIGHT ON IT AND EITHER SELECT EXPLORE OR RUN TO USE IT, MY AUTOMATIC UPDATES IS NOT WORKING, MY WINDOWS FIREWALL OPTION MENU IS ALL GREYED OUT, MY MOUSE TOUCH PAD WHICH IS DISABLED AND NOW WORKS(IT'S STILL DISABLED), AND I'M SURE THERE ARE A NUMBER OF OTHER THINGS THAT I HAVE NOT FOUND YET THAT ARE FLUBBED UP. IF I NEED TO GIVE A MORE THOUROUGH LIST OF SYPTOMS LET ME KNOW AND I'LL REPOST THEM.

SO HERE ARE THE 2 METHODS THAT I KEEP FINDING:


Method 1
Leave the svchost.exe - Application Error dialog box open, and then follow these steps.
Step1: Check whether settings for the Automatic Updates service and for the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) are correct
To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, point to Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
In the details pane, locate and double-click Automatic Updates.
Click the Log On tab.
Make sure that the Local System account option is selected and that the Allow service to interact with desktop check box is cleared.
Make sure that this service has been enabled in the Hardware Profile list. If this service has not been enabled, click Enable to enable the service.
Click the General tab, and make sure that the Automatic option is selected in the Startup Type list. Under Service status, click Start to start the service if it is not already running.
Repeat steps 2 through 6 for Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS).
Step 2: Reregister Windows Update components
To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL, and then press ENTER.
When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in WUAPI.DLL succeeded" message, click OK.
Type the following commands in the Open box, one after the other, and then press ENTER after each command:
REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL
REGSVR32 WUAUENG1.DLL
REGSVR32 ATL.DLL
REGSVR32 WUCLTUI.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL
REGSVR32 WUWEB.DLL
Step 3: Rename the Windows Update temporary folder
The temporary folder of Windows Update may be corrupted. In this case, you can rename the temporary folder of Windows Update. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
At the command prompt, type net stop Wuauserv, and then press ENTER.
Click Start, click Run, type %windir%, and then press ENTER.
In the folder that opens, locate and rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to SDold.
At the command prompt, type net start Wuauserv, and then press ENTER to start the Automatic Updates service.
Back to the top
Method 2
Follow these steps:
Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
In the System Properties dialog box, click the Automatic Updates tab.
Click Turn off Automatic Updates, and then click OK.
Restart the computer.
Use the Windows Update Web site to install updates manually.
After you install the updates manually, turn on Automatic Updates.






1. By turning off automatic updates, reboot, then manually going to windows
updates and installing the updates, turing on automatic updates, reboot.

2.

Perform these steps leaving the svchost crash dialog open.
1. Click Start->Run, type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the
open box and click OK.
2. Double click the service "Automatic Updates".
3. Click on the Log On tab, please ensure the option "Local System account"
is selected and the option "Allow service to interact with desktop" is
unchecked.

4. Check if this service has been enabled on the listed Hardware Profile. If
not, please click the Enable button to enable it.
5. Click on the tab "General "; make sure the "Startup Type" is "Automatic".
Then please click the button "Start" under "Service Status" to start the
service.
6. Repeat the above steps with the other service: Background Intelligent
Transfer Service (BITS)

Step 4: Re-register Windows Update components and Clear the corrupted
Windows Update temp folder

1. Click on Start and then click Run,
2. In the open field type "REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL" (without quotation marks) and
press Enter.
3. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in WUAPI.DLL succeeded" message,
click OK.
4. Please repeat these steps for each of the following commands:

REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL
REGSVR32 WUAUENG1.DLL
REGSVR32 ATL.DLL
REGSVR32 WUCLTUI.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL
REGSVR32 WUWEB.DLL

After the above steps are finished. Sicne temporary folder of Windows Update
may be corrupted. We can refer to the following steps to rename this folder
that

1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following
command in the opened window.

net stop WuAuServ
(note, you might need to reboot before the net stop command will work)

2. Click Start, Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.
3. In the opened folder, rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to SDold.
4. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following
command in the opened window.

net start WuAuServ



SO I CAN DO ALL OF THE THINGS THAT IS SAYS TO DO IN BOTH METHODS EXCEPT I AM UNABLE TO CHANGE EITHER THE AUTOMATIC UPDATES OR THE BITS SERVICE STATUS FROM STOPPED TO START. I GET THE FOLLWOING ERROR:
(error 1053: The service did not respond to the strart or control request in a timely fashion) ALSO WHEN I TRY TO ENABLE MY WINDOWS FIREWALL I GET THE FOLLOWING ERROR:(the specific error code is 0x000006ba [The RPC server is unavailable.].) HERE IS MY LOG ALSO IF IT HELPS.
