When I start my computer I get the following error message.
' Windows cannot find SSCVHOST.exe. Make sure that you typed name correctly and then try again. To search for a file click Start button and then search "

I am unable to search for this file. Any way I click OK and proceed further.

What is the problem and how to get over this.

Win XP drive? A quick Google search shows that SSCVHOST.exe might be a virus. If that's indeed true, it would explain the data loss on the C drive.

Do you have an active anti virus protection, a program you can scan both drives with? If not, download a trial of VIPRE and scan both drives.

Dear Mr Sovereign,
Through regedit I hopefully solved the SSCVIHOST.exe problem. The dialog box of the error is not shown now. TKU for your interest.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
