Hello,

I am looking for help with my PC (Windows XP Home, SP3).
My computer encounters a svchost error approximate 3 minutes after startup. It will turn the task bar into white color. It will make my sound device not work. It will disable the tab function in IE8, if I start IE8 after the svchost error. (I don's see the tab). However, if I start my IE8 before I encounter the svchost error, I can see and use the tab all along. BTW, some of the Microsoft updates are not able to be installed. The installation of those updates will hang during the process.

I have attached screen shots and other reports for reference.
Thanks in advance.

What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

Hi,

I cannot pinpoint exactly the time. However, there was a virus/spyware infected my computer. Then, I updated the virus signature. Yet, I cannot recall whether the virus or something else caused it.

Yeah, my guess would be malware. I'd suggest posting in the Am I Infected forum on this site.
