HelpMy pc has suddenly become very sluggish when i bring up the close program menu i have svchost displayed 3 times if i close this from the menu the pc is fine.But what is it and can i remove it ?
svchost - is a legitimate XP service. You will always have a few running because there is one running for each service.Check other things first. Is you AV up to date? Done a full scan?Any changes before it slowed down?
It appears that somehow somebody had installed loads of dodgy files on my hdd while i was online.A format later i installed "Norton firewall" and it seems problem solved.Thanks
The svchost error comes up on Win2000 when the current nasty msblaster virus gets to your system.As well as a firewall, you should download the appropriate Critical Updates to prevent this or simlar exploits n the future.
