Hi,

I keep getting the SVCHOST.exe error (running W2k SP4) but have tried all of the blaster removal/patch tools and cannot get rid of it!!

It is really annoying me as it seems to stop me from runing Windows Update and from loging into websites (like this one) that need passwords - Hotmail is a prime example.

I hope that someone can shed some light on this... What log files etc do I need to run and post here?

Thanks

Si

Well, I think that I may have got it sorted!! It was a varient (f) of the Blaster worm..

Can someone have a quick look at the HJT log and let me know if they see anything there that shouldn't be cause i'm not sure what to look for!

Moved to the new Security forum, as that's where virus/spyware/malware/etc. questions now belong.
