SVCHost.exe Issue and Adware Issue

Post by SolaruFlare on Wed May 04, 2011 4:10 am

Hello, I'm C. Forstner, otherwise known commonly on the web as SolarQ/Solar Flare.

My friend Candroo referred me to this board since I was having two problems.

I have one where a virus turns off Automatic Updates, disallowing me to turn it back on, it also overloads svchost.exe, when I end the process, I lose my sound, and my theme is verted to Windows Classic.

I also have another problem where when I use search browsers something redirects me, luckily, I got the NoScript Add-on to stop it from redirecting me to said ad places, but it's getting on my nerves.

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of these two annoying problems?

Thank you

Clearest Regards,

Solius Flare.
