I just got a Compaq Presario F700 laptop. I knew I was in for a ride when I fired it up and saw that damn Vista logo, so I hustled like hell to get XP on it. Installed all the drivers and everything went GREAT! Only one problem: Every time I go to shutdown a little window pops up and says "svchost.exe is closing" and it gives me the option to "End Now", so of course I press that button. How can I get rid of this annoying little window?

Anyone???? It's gotten to the point that it only does it maybe 3 out of 10 times, but still I'd like to know just what the hell it is.
