two problems on pc

  sugarbabe 11:32 24 Nov 2006

have two problems on a pc and unsure if they are related.

When i launch internet explorer or outlook express i get error message svchost. exe application error. memory could not be read and also error message generic host process for win32 services encountered aproblem and needs to close.

Also every time i launch outlook express the incoming pop3 server changes to an ip address so i have to change all details every time.

So far i have run windows repair, ran a download fix from microsoft re svc problem, ran anti -virus scan (mcafee) and am at mo installing windows defender.

any other ideas. It is a new dell pc running windows xp home

SVGhost is Nortons Anti-virius / Internet Security. Not sure if this is the problem, but have you got Nortons and Mccfee's anti-virius programs running together?
