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:
http://www.microsoft...&displaylang=en

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

Let me know how you got on lovely people.

I've been trying to access windows update. Unfortunately now, though my dial-up is connecting, what i now get are "these page cannot be displayed" and "dns error" messages.
I cannot browse. I tried my yahoo mail. it takes too long to download the pages.
Is it too late? What can I do? Are there any shortcuts or tools in removing the worm and repair what it damaged.
I already run fixblast and it said the worm has not been found on my computer. Not anymore. But I still get the svchost error message and can't download pages :(
Can someone help me please?

Before you do any of the above.. Make SURE that you disable SYSTEM RESTORE in WinME opr Win XP... other wise it can bounce back later if the system uses this facility...

(You can re-enable S~R a week or so later if you ant to...

And Always re-run your AV Scan/Stinger whatever a 2nd/3rd time until you get a Clean Run...

I have been though it and fix the problem, at least on
my computer. Below is the step I did, and solved my problem.
1)Format your HD or computer
2)Re-install Windows 2000 or Windows XP
3)Install Antivirus software
4)Go online and download new patches from microsoft
windows update website(DO NOT go to other website,
update only) Must download KB823980 and 833330
5)Update virus definition only (no other website)
6)offline
7)install new patches
8)restart your computer
9)scan your computer
Good Luck everybody!!
:)

Zonealarm is a pathetic firewall, so are all software firewalls, arther than paying 40 qwid for them, you can get a linsys router for under 50 qwid with hardware firewall plus youve got a router too if you need it.

If you are suffering errors with SVCHOST.exe, then you have likely been infected with the Sasser Virus. It is very new, and unless you have done a very recent virus definition update, your antivirus software would not detect it. The Symantec virus removal tool specific for sasser works very well. I detected its presence by noticing an application called AVSERVE2.exe taking up my system resources. :D

The problem is not MSBlaster. Microsoft is the guilty one.
Unplug your cable network and your system will be fine.
If this sound excessive, disable Services as Automatic Updates and Remote Registry.
