SvcHostFix

Repair and restore svchost.exe to your computer
SvcHostFix is a lightweight solution for the users who want to get rid of the errors related to the “svchost” executable file. This Windows component is a very important part of the operating system since it is used for launching multiple processes every time you start your computer.

svchost is a generic application that runs in multiple instances on your computer. Every instance is related with a certain .DLL file that needs to be loaded in order to provide some functionality for the user.

This application is launched every time Windows needs to run a service from a dynamic-link library which can look suspicious for your antivirus system. In some cases, a new instance of svchost can trigger an alert and prompt you to remove the threat.

As this is a known issue, most antivirus solutions do not delete or quarantine important Windows components. However, in some isolated cases the svchost executable might be removed from its default location which prevents your computer to run important processes. It can also be deleted or renamed by a virus that attempts to take its place.

The SvcHostFix tool is designed to check the presence of the file in its default location and restore it. It requires no configuration and immediately restores the file from other folders such as the ServicePackFiles or the DLLcache folder.

The program also includes the svchost file from the Windows XP installation and copies it to the default location if the other measures fail. Although very simple, the tool provides you with no other documentation than a warning that it should not be used for other operating systems than the Windows XP Service Pack 3.

If you are having problems with locating the svchost files in order to run your processes, the SvcHostFix could help you repair your system with just one click. You should try it before using other complicated solutions.
