I would take all the computers off the network, clean, virus scan, reconnect and patch each one in turn so that you know only clean machines are connected to the network. Other legitimate copies can be found in the following folders:C:\I386C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\C:\WINDOWS\$NtServicePackUninstall$\C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\SVCHOST.EXE-3530F672.pfIf svchost.exe is running as a startup (shows in msconfig), it can be bad as shown here and here.

I hope this helps someone!

When I do a Ctrl Alt Del to check my programs that are running, I have anywhere from 4-10 instances of svchost running at the same time. When the crashes were happening, Event ID 4097 was not uncommon in the application log, I was also getting i8042prt errors periodically (Event ID 28) though those may not be related so I supposed one possibility is that your network card has a problem.

You shouldn't be seeing the symptoms described here. This is strange as it only affects updates trying to make changes to WindowsXP (and the very related DirectX) from MSoft updating. These days runtime is just as, sometimes more, impactful, and I recommend something like Process Explorer (http://ask-leo.com/d-31017a ) to see what DLL's are in use when an executable is running.

You can see all the copies of svchost and what services they are running by typing "tasklist / svc" in a command window. But of course I could be wrong.

I thought that maybe the svchost was the source of the problem but I suppose not (not much of a computer expert on those things).

I can still connect, but only the Windows Task Manager actually acknowledges the connection. Everything works fine on my computer but when I look at systems processes there are 4 or 5 svchost.exe running. SVCHOST can go to 98% (or whatever) if you are under attach from an outside source. I would advise you to download either Microsoft AntiSpyware Software or Spysweeper for Spyware and also download AntiVir from www.free-av.com for Anti-Virus software.
