RE: svchost.exe error. I've read all the fixes but I am unable to sucessfully install SP3 or SP4. These service packs need to be installed before the patches or removal of the virus will work. Unfortunately in my case the install terminates before the process is completed ..Anyone else have this problem and a solution?

Thanks

Great news after much searching I found a solution that works!

I was getting the svchost error whilst on the net like everyone else recently. It does seem to be due to the blaster worm. Here is what to do, it takes time but it did work.

Download and run service pack 4, or at least have service pack 3 installed. It takes upto 2 hours to download so be patient.
http://www.microsoft...s/servicepacks/

Next download and run the BlasterWorm patch for 2k:

This really did work so its well worth giving it a go.

Let me know how you got on lovely people.

I works..

Thank you David.

Non english user has to keep attention by download the BlasterWorm patch.

Only the patch in the right language works!! The patch is language sensitive.

Bye :D

There is a possibility that you have the coolwebsearch trojan and not msblast. CWS can cause svchost problems. Wander over to http://www.spywareinfo.com/ and look around the forums. These folks seem to have a handle on CWS.

I had that very same problem not too long ago. Everytime I'd go online, svchost would crash. I talked to another friend of mine, who said that it could be hardware related. So, this is what I did. I have a 36 slot networking HUB next to my PC. I don't use it very often, so it sits there and my ethernet card sits in my PC. Everytime I'd access the internet, the ethernet card would attempt to do the same because WIN2KPro kept thinking that the Network HUB was active (hence, internet sharing among other PC's) and it'd crash. So I did a quick fix and disabled the ethernet card in Device Manager and since then, it stopped crashing and I've been running my PC smoothly. Maybe this would help you find your problem! I hope I helped a little bit. B)

I have run into this error at a few of my clients, in which case it was not the blaster virus, it was actually ad-ware software on the pc which was causing the svchost process to hang when on the internet or browsing your files on the local drive. I ended up downloading ad-ware 6.0 from download.com, made sure the software version was up to date, ran the scan, removed the ad-ware (and spy-ware). Problem was solved. :D
