The usually conflict and as a result won't delete the things you need to go..
It does indeed appear to be a malware problem so please restart Malwarebytes and update it to the most current version and definitions.. Once that's done, restart the computer into Safe Mode, then run a full system scan using Malwarebytes..
How To Start In 'Safe Mode'
Once that's done, restart into "normal" Windows and run ANOTHER full system scan with Malwarebytes.. Each time, delete whatever is found..
Now download, install, update, then run a full system scan with the free SuperAntispyware tool from the link below.

Repeat the scans till nothing is detected. If the tools above don't clean out the system, please let us know EXACTLY was is found.
Hope this helps.
Hello, been looking for the answer online for a couple days but with no luck, I figured I'd try asking here first.
During normal startup, svchost.exe, or the generic host process for win32, "encounters an error" and crashes. Strange thing is, my browsers can't/won't navigate to any web pages but instead always deliver the same "page cannot be displayed" message. However, my IM, teamspeak/vent, and command prompt pinging all work fine. I'm currently running in safe mode where the browsers apparently work.
I've scanned with Ad-Aware, Spybot, and Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware all at the same time to remove anything; I've checked my MTU setting and it seems fine; and I've tried a system restore but Norton blocks it (this is my parents computer that I'm trying to fix for them and they installed and uninstalled it so many times it's all jacked up and I can't remove it).
Was hoping anyone could point me in the right direction, I can upload anything you might need (logs, etc.).
OS is XP Home Edition w/ SP3 running on an old-skool eMachine desktop.
