It seems as KB873333 update on XP SP2 causes AV in svchost.exe during systmem
shutdown which is described here
http://forum.iamnotageek.com/history/topic.php/1819062255-1.html

Is there any fix for it except uninstalling the security patch ?

Thanks.

This is the only fix I'm aware of yet:
http://www10.brinkster.com/expl0iter/svchost~err/official~response.htm

What you are seeing is not an *error*, it is simply the result of the
debugger M$ attached to certain task(s)!
The entire heap dump can be found in %tmp% --before-
the msgbox is closed (otherwise it's deleted)
Uninstalling the mentioned hotfix doesn't really resolve it, it downgrades
some mudules and bypasse the process of linked
objects terminating and reporting.

At some point during the shutdown process, linked tasks to
'svchost.exe -k netsvcs' are not fully aware the system is shudding down,
and trigger the useless debugger.
-Svchost --infact- is supposed to terminate on shutdown... ;)
It does not terminate during any other time--as it seems by the error.

Petr,

There is a supported hotfix for it that covers the issue cited here :

An application that implements the IMallocSpy debugging interface may
experience heap corruption after you install security update 873333
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894194/

Frankly, the iamnotageek website is no longer to be trusted since they
now use pop unders from the notorious spyware purveyor,
