    My Win XP does not shut down because of this file, that won´t terminate. Besides, Norton is disabled and I am not able to enable it. Is this a virus? I've been reading about a SVSHOST, without the "i" but couldn't find anything, in any database, about this one. Help please!!!
    Thanks in advance

    Hi, snowbound, thanks for answering

    I have already scanned my system and couldn't find any viruses but still...
    What if I just delete the SVSHOSTI file and edit the registry?

    Hi again Atired.

    I wouldn't delete it yet.

    Posting a HijackThis log would give us a better idea what that file might be associated with.

    Just follow the instructions here,

    then post your HijackThis log in the hijack cleaning forum and one of the experts will give u recommendations on any Malware found.
