Have had a problem I've been trying to fix for 6 days. I've used a lot of anti-spyware/malware/virus programs. Right now, I have Norton active on the computer. It keeps giving me messages about High CPU usage from SVCHOST.exe (100% of at least one CPU), Network traffic from 86b6b96b.com from Windows\System32\SVCHOST.exe, Ikaturl11.com from the same source, and Svchost.exe Application Error message "The Instruction at "0x7dcef28a" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read". I am using Windows Xp Professional. SP2. I tried to use windows update, both direct and from windows security center. The computer wont let me. I've used several programs to remove viruses, and they usually remove 2-3, just not this svchost virus. Google searched, Windows Help Desk etc. I can give a list of programs I've used against this problem. Help?
