I am having Pentium III computer with 128 MB RAM, with Windows 2000 professional as OS.

I get the following error message "scvhost.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created." After this message, I am unable to cut/ copy / paste or save web pages. Mostly, this message comes after internet connection is established. Internet connection is made using a 120 KBPS digital modem.

Kindly help me to rectify the problem.

Full compiled list of tools to use: http:Q_20945897.html
Check these links for online virus scanners.  It's recommended to run at least two of these.  
  Norton/Symantec --> http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/default.asp?productid=symhome&langid=ie&venid=sym
  Trend Micro -->     http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
  Panda ActiveScan--> http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
  McAfee Security --> http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp
  Stinger -->         http://download.nai.com/products/mcafee-avert/stinger.exe

These links Check for Spyware:
  Spybot-S&D -->  http://www.safer-networking.org/
  HijackThis -->  http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html
  Ad-Aware -->    http://www.netsecurity.about.com/library/blfreespyware.htm
  Web Shredder--> http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/cwschronicles.html#cwshredder
  Pest Patrol --> http://www.pestpatrol.com/downloads/eval/download.asp
  PCHell removal->http://www.pchell.com/support/spyware.shtml

  Make sure that after downloading these, that you update them.  It helps to try at least two of these.
  You're better off running these in safe mode (press F8 before Windows loads)
  If all else fails, download HijackThis and post the log that is generated after running it on your system.

Hi r_venkatadhri,

Take a look at the first page of experts exchange :)
You will find this link:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win2000/Q_20707044.html

that is exactly your problem except your computer doesn't shut down. I suggest you to start updating windows fast.

Greetings,
