svchost.exe causes application error

"The exception Privileged Instruction.(0xc0000096)occured in the application at location 0x00c9f863
         Click on OK to terminate the program

I am thinking there is a program running in the background that is the cause. But which one is going to be hard to track down. Because you are going to have to patiently throuhg a process of elimination find the one that is doing it.
