I can't do anyting on the internet. (I am using a laptop with internet from one of our neighbors if you were wondering how I was getting on Geeks to Go)
I've checked that all of the wires are hooked up. Also when I first get on my user thing, 2 boxes appear:
(picture of an X) Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\scvhost.exe'. Make sure you type the name correctly, and try again. To search for a
file, click the start button, and click Search.
(Exclamation point Could not run or load or run 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\scvhost.exe' specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your
in a yellow triangle) computer or remove te reference to it in the registry.
Sorry about the ugly attempt at the Box 1 & 2 stuff typing; I get bored without WoW.
Also, I dont know what scvhost is; there are 6 of scvhost.exe in task manager processes.
I don't know if this helps, but we had the Geek Squad come over to fix our internet o be shared with our laptop (I am using the Laptop now). They also made it able to print from the laptop to the printer on our computer. The printer connection broke for some time, but we were still able to use the internet from the computer. The Geek Squad changed the whole internet thing so I don't know if I need to do something different. Also, the last time the computer worked right was when my sister was using Itunes and looking at songs.
I still can't get on the internet. Please be quick to find what's wrong.

Now, the Local Area Connection says Limited or No Connectivity.
I've double-checked that all the wires are in the right places using a diagram that my dad drew while it worked.
I've also run Spy- Sweeper a few more times, but my computer is clean.
The modem and wireless router's lights are all on like they should be.
I still can't get on the internet. Why?

Look in device manager and see at Network Adapter how many adapters are there and if there is no yellow mark near any of them.
Try to connect the laptop in the same manner that you connect your pc and see if it works.

In Network Connections, there is a Local Area Connection, under in grey letters are Limited or no connectivity and Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet and the other is Local Area Connection 3 (we don't use this one) Intel (R PRO/100 VE Network Connection. The plain Local Area Connection that we use has a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in it on the picture.
On our laptop under Network Adapters tere is a Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller with an X on its picture, and an Intel®PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection. I am using the Intel PROSet/Wireless thing to get on our neighbor's internet.
Does this help or is it not what you wanted?

The modem is faulty
The router is faulty
the cable between the modem and router is faulty
Some settings on the router are not right.
the adapters on your pc are faulty or miising their drivers. Let's ignore them for the time being.
Please do the following (use the laptop, not the pc):
Switch off the modem and the router for about 5 minutes. Switch on. If you can't connect wirelessly with the laptop disconnect the router and connect the the wire that goes out of the modem to the ethernet connection on the laptop. try to connect to the internet. If it doesn't work create a new connection as I explained in a previous post.
Double click the new icon. Make absolutely sure that Username name and password are correct. Please report if you can run the internet.

I've also switced the places of the alike wires, but nothing has changed.

The correct windows file is SVChost.exe
You are probably infected with malware.
Download Runscanner and post you log to the appropriate forum.

I had to take the router out and leave the modem there (I had tried it by the modem by itself before but not with the next steps).
Then, I pressed the reset button on my router until the red/orange lights went on and off twice.
Then, I typed the IP address of my computer in the Address Bar and hit Enter.
Then, I typed in the Username & Password for our internet.
Clicked connect a few times until it worked.
Then my Internet was fixed.
The router doesn't work anymore. I tried putting it back in doing these same steps but I just got the Limited or No Connectivity. Should I start a new forum thing for that? I'm also sorry that your help you gave me didn't work.
