On switch on l am receiving an error message svchost.exe application error. Message reads The Instruction at "oxffbadd11" referenced memory at "oxffbadd11" could not be written. The operating speakers work but cannot play any music videos etc. It is as if the speakers have gone from then device manager, but l can still see them there. Research tells me this is a windows service update problem. Have tried to update windows by taking off autoupdate, rebooting, but once l eventyually get into microsoft it tells me there are files missing and gicevs an error code 0x80070420. Knowledge base does not show this code. Youe excellent site suggests it maybe malware and l have downloaded the supoerantispyware software. Can anyone one out there help an old fogie like me who would love to be a computer geek !! Simon

Hello simongordon, my name is fenzodahl512 and welcome to Geekstogo..

Please have a read at this topic and do all the preliminary steps given.

If you are using Windows Vista, or if you are using XP and already have Service Pack 1a or later, please ignore Step Three: Windows Updates and continue with Step Four: Reboot - Test

It should handle about 70% of your malware problem.. Should the problem still exist, please post a fresh HijackThis log here as shown in the Step Five: Posting a Hijack This Log.. Thank you :)

Regards
