scvhost.exe error and explorer.exe will not load at startup

When my computer starts up I get my documents opening and cannot load scvhost.exe error and no desktop. I then have to hit ctrl shift esc to open the task manager and hit new task explorer.exe to get windows vista ultimate to load up to the desktop, otherwise it will just restart affter sitting there for too long. My computer has recenly been restarting on its own. This is a fresh new install on a new hd. I dont know why this is happening.

3.2ghz intel duo core 1
gb pc3200 ddr ram
512 ati 1600 agp
250gb sata
ABIT SG-80dc motherboard.

Any suggestions?

Have you installed updated drivers for your system? This would include any chipset/mobo drivers, SATA drivers, video drivers, etc? Without them performance will be flakey at best.

In particular, try the scan at http://www.driveragent.com/ (using IE) and see what it finds out. Then look for those drivers to update (for example, my system still needs Intel drivers for the controllers on my system - but none are available).

If you can't find Vista drivers, try XP drivers in compatibility mode and Run as Administrator. But, I wouldn't update them with the XP drivers unless you have a known issue with that particular piece of hardware.

Check your Device Manager and Event Viewer for signs about what needs to be updated.

nothing is in the event viewer.
Installed new Video card driver.
svchost.exe startup problem still occurs. I still have to manually start explorer.exe for the desktop to come up.

Any other suggestions?

Your HJT log shows scvhost.exe running - this is not the same as svchost.exe. Here's a link to what I suspect it is: http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintas...ibrary/scvhost/

Please be advised that I'm not an HJT expert - so I'd suggest that you post your HJT log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

Please read the pinned topics and the instructions before posting your logfile. While some of the processes are different between Vista and XP - the principles behind them remain the same - so I'd think it'd be better to have the HJT Team look at you log.

Finally, it appears that some entries show that there was an attempt to clean some stuff out. In particular there seems to be some attempts to delete svchost.exe entries. Please do not do anything else until you've heard from the HJT Team.

You can close this post because I just formatted my machine and reinstalled vista ultimate again.
