sounds like its relating to the video card, do as I suggested as it really won't hurt and its not as if you can't change it back easily anyways just want to eliminate the possibility

Shadow im going off topic for a min, but you play warcraft? or any of the warcraft games other than WoW? because tinker is a heros name on there and you have tinkerer in your title, and you have a footman from warcraft 2 dieing as your avvy....

1. Don't recall the version of XP (ie pro or home) being stated

Anyway, Thresh, wondering if this might be a virus/adware problem. svchost.exe is a normal process that runs in XP but also tends to get hijacked by viruses/spyware.

Can you post a 'hijack this' log?

Download it here if you don't already have it (don't make any changes with it, just run the scan)

Disregard my post, i didnt read everything..

Sounds like your system just went to hell. Try reinstalling, maybe you disabled something in the system services that needed to be enabled?

You're welcome.

Must admit, I forgot to ask if your system was OC'd (duh)!
Glad it all seems to be OK now & I can't see anything in the hijack log that looks suspect.
