An ATI video adapter requires it

As it can be re-installed, you could look at uninstalling .net framework including the hotfix and the service pack

Reboot

Run tune up

Any programme which needs .net framework should show a message about needing it

If you don't have any, the PC should run without the svchost error

Not sure if I have an ATI video adapter but I do have ATI Software Uninstall Utility, ATI Control Panel, & ATI Display Driver so I guess I must have :whistling: When u say uninstall .net framework, the hot fix and the Service Pack, which Service Pack? I can only find Office 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2):MAINSP2op

You have an ATI video adapter, so it needs to stay

Off looking for the solution

Hello Wannabe1, no, it's an HP Pavilion. I just wish I could pin point exactly when the errors started to pop up but I can't. All the Windows applications became slow to open as well. As u will see, Keith has tried many things but unfortunately the errors remain :whistling: Thank u for taking a look at the problem.

Is this XP Home or Pro? Do you have a scanner of camera connected to the machine?

Download, install, and run HiJackThis...save a log and attach it here for me. This will let me see what is trying to run on startup and may help us pinpoint the problem.

I forgot to mention that there is no scanner or camera connected. Anyway here's the Log. Why doesn't it show that my browser is Mozilla Firefox - I very rarely use IE6. I've clicked on "Add This Attachment" but there's nothing to say it's attached?!

Let's look at the alerter service real quick.

Click Start, then Run, type services.msc and click "Ok". Locate and double click on "Alerter". In the resulting window, what is listed in the "Startup Type:" drop down field?

It's Disabled. I changed that on the 27th July from Auto after reading quite an indepth piece on optimizing XP Services. Thought it may improve the opening of my Windows Applications. The errors remained.
