Everytime I connect to the internet, any application I start which uses the
connection doesn't work or is really slowed down util I end 'svchost.exe
network services in task manager' How do I fix this? I 'm running windows xp
service pack 2 with a broadband dsl connection. Thanks!

Hi,

Open Windows Explorer to this folder:

C:\Windows\system32\wins

Is there an svchost.exe file here? If so, you have a virus.
