with the mcafee virus scan update messing up my pc and removing svchost.exe its causing me real problems.
been doing lots of research and it does seem that i can just replace it with another svchost.exe from another machine, however i dont have another xp running sp3. i cant repair fromthe discs either as i cant find them,
im in a real bind with this as all the resolves that have popped up cant solve it, the core solution is to replace the svchost.
is there anywhere i can download just this file safely?
