  • Hi Arun, trued to follow the steps provided but am stumped at the ‘ending the svchost.exe’ portion.

    When the tast manager appeared, and I looked at the Processes tab, I found 3 svchost.exe files, but the username portion is blank, leaving me no clue which is under my user name.

    So I decided to try my luck and end all 3. The 1st one ended o.k, but when I tried ending the 2nd one, the computer prompt that some processes has been stopped and forced me to wait for the automated shut down it initiated.

    I dare not try it again as I fear I might harm my laptop. Do u have an alternative or solution to my problem?? Thanks very much!!
