svchost.exe attacks

Recommended Posts

Hi -- "computer wizard" on the ad-aware forum suggested I post this here: I can't get ad-aware to load (it hangs at the startup screen). Along with this, avast is reporting malicious attacks a few times a hour, generally upon svchost.exe, often also on firefox. Possibly related to svchost's problems, at startup an app I didn't even know I had [referred to as "Camera software" (isw.exe)] crashed. As a session goes on, sometimes my machine slows to a stop and 100% of my cpu is taken up though I'm not doing anything to speak of. If I restart my machine (laptop running xp), all is okay for a while but I keep getting the avast svchost messages. So: does anyone have any suggestions in fixing the svchost issues and/or getting ad-aware to load and run so perhaps it can find the problem? Thanks!!
