Hi there ArsenalFX
Firstly, please read the selfhelp instructions which can be found here
. Please use those instructions as a guide to speed up your computer. You will follow a number of steps to clear the clutter from your PC, and also quicken your startup time etc...
Secondly, I would imagine that the svchost.exe's that startup when your computer starts are legitimate - 99.99% of the time they are. You can assure yourself bu searching for svchost.exe using the windows search feature - the legitimate svchost.exe is found in C:\Windows\System32
folder - you may also find a legitimate version of the file in C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386
. You might also like to run a full system scan with Noron Anti-virus. When did these problems occur? Have you tried to use system restore to a date earlier than when the problems arose? If this does not solve your problem, please post back and we can go from there.
