Start>run>EventVwr.MSC

System log, look for any errors reported by the Service Control Manager. Might give some insight.....

Without more information about the error I couldn't tell you what your exact error is. But here's a tip that seems to have helped many users that had this, and similar errors on startup.

svchost is normally started by system services. run msconfig -> services tab -> hide all microsoft services checked -> disable all. Restart and see if that changes anything.
