~~Please help me!!~~

I have all together deleted my svchost registry value while using regedit in an attempt to clean a virus that I do not believe I even had. I am using Windows XP Professional and I beg that someone can help me find a replacement for this registry value so I do not have to, again, reformat and rebuild my PC. Thanks for the help and @ least reading this post in the first place; I will check back frequently.

SYCHOST.EXE Info & Download

If you're running XP Pro then you won't need that file since you already have it.

1.) Start --> Run --> cmd
2.) Tasklist /svc >C:ianaginfo.txt

an example of what I got when I issued this command if you'd like to take a look at an example.

A Description of Svchost.exe in Windows XP:http://support.micro...om/?kbid=314056 : http://support.micro...om/?kbid=314056

Virus Precaution:
The original file from Microsoft gets placed in the Located in C:\WINDOWS\System32\ directory. If you find it anywhere else then you should be suspicious for sure.

Hope this is what you want.
