This problem started after I sent my computer for service on
installing a new harddrive to my computer while retaining the old hard drive.
My reason for doing so was I wanted them to move all my old files to my new hard drive while retaining them in my old hard drive.
After it was done,
I went home and started my pc,
then I received this messages,


svchost.exe-Application Error

The instruction at "0x7c910e03" referenced memory at "0x50737572".The memory could not be "written".

Click on Ok to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program


When I click Ok,my computer hangs.
If I click Cancel,the same notice will appear again
with the exception of having only "Ok" as the option which
would hang my comp.


Another problem that comes with it is the


Generic Host Process for Win32 services.

I went to check the data which the error contains and this is what i get,

The following files will be included in this error report:
G:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER8a80.dir00\svchost.exe.mdmp
G:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER8a80.dir00\appcompat.txt
(note,these files are stored in my new hard drive after they were copied from the old hard drive)
and when I click the "Error Report" or the "Don't send Report",It'll also cause the computer to hang.

I've searched through the internet countless times in google and tried several solutions.
None solved the problem...
though my:

svchost.exe-Application error was temporary ridden of for one day...
however,it returned again today....

I'm at my wits end and am in desperate need for help.
I'm unsure if this is a virus or a malware or a defect.
Please help me.
And sorry if this was posted in the wrong forum.

Can you perform some scans with http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php and http://www.superantispyware.com and post the results here. You just might be infected.

Hi :thumbsup:.

Worth reading, as a first step, IMO: The Instruction at ......referenced memory at... Errors.

Second thing I suggest...take a look in Event Viewer...for any listed error which occurs in the same approximate timeframe that you received these onscreen error messages. List the event and source for each error noted that relates. Do not list information or warning items.

G:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER8a80.dir00\appcompat.txt, double-click this file and post the contents, please.

Louis
