Have you tried to restore to the latest restore point?
Have you tried to download this file from internet (please be careful from the source) or to copy it from another computer? (Same windows version...)
This file is used by the OS to load dll, without it, no library can be loaded and therefore nothing will be able to work properly...

Ok friend you are facing a same problem people ask me many times.
Actually you have to understand the terminology of an antivirus softaware . When it shows you high alert never delete the file you should heal or quarantine with your antivirus. If you delete the virus which was not actually a virus befor that it was a file which is attacked by the virus . And it now searched as virus. If you delet it its functioning area stops running the program of which the file was. So do not delet virus heal it with software . It stores file at vault and let u access the program without spreading the virus.
All of you here are mis-informed.
There is a Windows OS file SVCHOST.exe found in windows folder that is required for smooth operations.
How ever there is a virus by the name SCVHOST.exe which does things like disabling your system administrator ( CTRL+ALT+DEL) .
I searched this blog to find a fix for the later ( SCVHOST.exe) but all of you guys have discussed about the required windows file.
Pls dont get confused with the nomenclature
at startup, there some kind of an error saying that Windows cannot find scvhost.exe. so I tried to find it but I couldn't. I have already delete the infected file..but the scvhost.exe problem still shows up. what should I do?

Hello, I found this sochvst.exe in my computer recently after I Enter and Space keys stopped working. I decided to delete it, now, when I press Enter or Space I receive a message: 'Windows cannot find C:\\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\sochvst.exe. Make sure you typed the name correctly, then press enter'. Is there a solution for recovering my system? It would really good, I can't find any solution.
Thanks in advance.
get windows original cd and reinstall it again ...don't choose " repair" , but reinstall..it wll reinstlall on the same directory, same root, then it'll make some corrections to all the missing files , u'll be prompted for that, so just click " yes or ok..;it'll take 20 may b at least 30 minutes .
don't try to download te svchost file cause it's a root process,it's part of the heart services and it's istalled as a package so even if you deleted the file you can't reinstall it manually only the windows installer program can do that properly.
