Hi All,
Long time reader....first time poster :whistling:
great job your doing over here, its a really well run site with a huge amount of helpful information!

basically, when i turn on my PC, i get this damned svchost.exe error, which i always send onto microsoft.
i have noticed that one of things its done, is that i can seem to download and instal the latest version of flash from the macromedia (well adobe!) site. i click the download button and a new page loads, but nothing happens - very weird

anyways, here is the info i have grabbed from my svchost.exe error reports.....
thanks in advance!

I researched the problem in some places and it looks as if some system files are corrupted. If you have the xp installation cd place it in the drive and then go to: start > run. Type sfc /scannow. A dialog box will show up with a coloured bar advancing. When the process ends the dialog just disappears.

What do you mean by reinstalling xp. Do you have two installations of xp now or did you perform clean install. Is the computer working well now?
