This is kinda off offtopic but it makes no sense to open a special topic.
What is svchost.exe,what is it's use I remember having two viruses a year back and the problem was in the svchost.
Even as we speak there are 4 svchost.exe files running in the system and they actually take like 11 megabytes of memory.So is it file esential for running winxp or is my AV not recognizing something(It's updated)?

svchost.exe is the Windows one. You'll probably have several (many of the things in Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Services are started using it), and they should stay.

scvhost.exe is the worm.

svchost.exe is the exe file that runs many of the windows services that makes windows appear like it does. One of the svchost.exes are maintaining the XP themes (if you disables it you'll get a classic Win 200x look with no option to change themes). It does also include the help system and indexing services, as well as network services.

Start -> Run -> services.msc

And you'll get a list of services you can disable to improve system speed.

Here is a list of "safe" things to disable. At least things most of us won't miss.

Back to the topic of my pos computer; I cant get rid of admilikeep and admiliserv. I go to task manager and end process and it closes, then opens right away down the list of programs running.

I wish i could post pics because it would make things clearer so much.

You could try the following (No guarantees though, I found it on the web, conserning these programs);

Check your add and remove program for these entries if there remove them:

C:\Program Files\ShopAtHomeSelect Agent
C:\Program Files\Messenger Plus! 3
C:\Program Files\Admilli Service

MessengerPlus ,2, 3- third party MSN Messenger extension that adds a number of useful features. Bundles the hard to remove C2Media LOP adware; the software does offer you a choice during setup: make sure to install MessengerPlus WITHOUT that "sponsor program"!

If the entry for ShopAtHomeSelect remains in your Add/Remove Programs even though the software is uninstalled, you can get rid of it by opening the registry (Start->Run->regedit) and deleting the key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Uninstall\ShopAtHomeSelect Agent'.



----------------------------------------------------------------------
Adaware SE Personal Edition (this is a freeware version)

Click on "Proceed" to save these Preferences.
Click on the "Scan Now" button.

Remove everything it finds.

about the turning off of non-essential services to increase performance, make sure you only manage those through my computer - manage and not using msconfig
