Windows update problem (svchost.exe)
 
Who has problems updating Windows XP?
I tried doing a fresh install of Win XP SP3 on a PC a few times (reformat HDD each time :s22:). Every time the same problem repeats: when Windows update runs, no updates will be found and svchost.exe will load one thread of the CPU to the max :( .
If install Internet Explorer 8, the problem stops only temporarily - Windows update works but after one or two auto searches, downloads and installs of updates, the problem repeats.

Windows 2000 svchost.exe error

recently my previous hard disk failed and i replaced it with a new one and i installed windows 2000 pro service pack 4,
i retrived my data from the faulty drive and was doing good till i start connecting to the net;
now i get the error svchost.exe the referenced memory could not be accessed.
i searched and seen many articles explaining what the cause might be , some suggest a virus or worm,
others may be installing the microsoft security patch or downloading the norton tools for fixing the blaster
or welch worm might fix the problem, the microsoft web site suggests editing the registry might solve the problem.

Wow, Im really REALLY out of the flash subject this time, and I hope non of you gets offended due to this. But Im really panic and I dont feel to ask microsoft...
My cpu usage is constatly above 40% without having anything running than the op, so you can imagine the suffering workin with flashMx,firewoksMx,photoshop7 and fruityloops at the same time. A took a look at the process-viewer-thingy, and I found that a svchost.exe is eating pretty much of the cpu, and I wonder if anyone knows what this is for, and if you can have a look to see how if you have that running... thank you, and I dont expect ANYONE to answer this, but if you do, thanks a million.

what does svchost.exe do in windows,

recently a process named "generic host process for win32 services" with filename svchost.exe keeps popping up in my firewall asking permission to reach a number of ips. it is not one or two but dozen times in a few seconds.
is it safe to let it go thru my firewall and what app would invoke this thing?
I have checked for viruses and adwares but turned out nothing and other apps would use their real firenames in asking permission of my firewall.

ok here's my problem...my computer has been lagging like crazy so opened up task manager to see what was taking up my memory and cpu...i didn't see anything but then i noticed i had like 6 svchost.exe processes running...i looked it up and microsoft stated that svchost can run multiple times at once...the problem is one of them is taking up like 50,000 KB more memory than any of the others and this particular is also taking up a crapload of my cpu off and on as well...is there anything i can do to stop this?
