For some time I have gotten a pop-up error stating

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
svchost.exe apllication error:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The instruction at "0x75606eb5" referenced memory at "0x00000008". The memory could not be "read".
Click "ok" to terminate program
| OK |

I have tried many programs to stop this error and finally used the "powerful" program Combofix. This program quickly resolved my problem with the pop-up, but my internet and sound still don't work. I ran the program twice and still no luck. I have also recently ran Webroot antivirus and Malwarebytes, but my computer appears to be virus free.
I would be very grateful for some help.
Thanks,

Log on as an administrator, go Start > Run and type: "cmd". In the window that appears type: "netsh winsock reset". When the program is finished, you will receive the message: "Successfully reset the Winsock Catalog. You must restart the machine in order to complete the reset." Close the command box and reboot your computer.

Go Start > Run > type: "cmd" In the window that appears type: "ipconfig /flushdns". Close the command box.

Go Start > Control Panel > Network Connections. Right click on your default connection, usually Local Area Connection or Dial-up Connection if you are using Dial-up, and and choose Properties. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item. Select the radio button that says "Obtain DNS servers automatically". Reboot.

Warning: Some Internet Service Providers need specific DNS settings. You need to make sure that you know if such DNS settings are required before you make this change.

Hello virused,

and finally used the "powerful" program Combofix.


Please note: ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert." It is NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

Running ComboFix by yourself is like performing open heart surgery on yourself--the scalpel and other surgical tools that is ComboFix is meant to be wielded by a highly trained surgeon only in emergencies or dire circumstances. When the surgeon is thru s/he leaves the room. So combofix should be removed from a system once it has accomplished its job, unlike an AV that is there to protect you from future infections.

. . . CF does make some alterations to your system if you run it. Even if you had no malware removed and run the uninstall command, some things may be different now on your system. I can tell you that one thing is that all your restore points will be flushed out and a new one created. There is a good reason to do that when you have a severe infection--but if you aren't infected you might need those restore points.

Read and abide by the disclaimer people. It's there for a reason. Stick to running and protecting yourself with a good AV and firewall and an anti-malware scanner or two. If you feel you need a second opinion, try running online scans. If you feel you might need surgery, come here to BC and ask for help--that is what we're here for.

I tried to go with Budapest's approach, but when i tried to set up a connection on administrator (which previously had no connection) it found no wireless networks. I am using a Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Network USB, and nothing is being found.

Run the command "netsh winsock reset" from the Admin account and then reboot into your normal account.

Thank you so much for your help Budapest, my computer is back to running smoothly. Everything but my sound. I have a ESC Elitegroup Mother board with an ATI HD audio card model a740gm-m. I have been looking for a driver, but none seem to work. I also tried to get the driver from the motherboard CD, but no luck.

Try reinstalling the motherboard chipset driver.

I believe that the download is a ZIP file. Open it and post back what files are in the ZIP file.
