This is a problem that happened to one of our viewers. His system got infected with a virus but his Anti Virus cleaned it successfully. But what was strange is that during the next startup his system showed an error message “C:\recycled\SVCHOST.exe not found”.
I came to know that this problem is mostly caused when scanned with either McAfee or AVG Anti Virus (I don’t discourage the use of them). The problem is caused when either the virus or the Anti Virus does some changes in the registry. To know more about the Svchost.exe process, read this.
Well the solution is not at all difficult:
• Open registry editor (typing regedit in the Run box).
• Navigate to both of the following keys:
• Now if you will see a shell Explorer.exe with the value “C:\recycled\SVCHOST.exe” in any one of them, just delete the whole key of explorer.exe
Rebooting will solve the problem.
