"Host Process for Windows Services has stopped" HELP!

I have Vista home premium 32bit installed on my computer, which is a Sony Vaio desktop.
I picked up a virus a few days ago and ran a scan.
It found & deleted the virus, but I'm still having problems.
Whenever I start a program, such as IE, I get this error
message, "Host Process for Windows Services has stopped".


My computer then starts running hard and within a few minutes the screen freezes up.
I don't have a Vista startup disk and I'm afraid to try anything without some advice.
I miss XP! Any help would be greatly appreciated, but please, make it simple so I can
understand what to do :D

Thanks,
suelacroix

Hi,

Let's be sure all the malware is gone as no one program can be relied upon to detect and remove all malware.
Better to be sure now than very sorry later.
Then run the cleanup as shown below.

These can be done in Safe Mode - repeatedly tap F8 as you boot however you should also run them in

regular Windows when you can.

Download malwarebytes and scan with it, run MRT, and add Prevx to be sure it is gone.
(If Rootkits run UnHackMe)

Download - SAVE - go to where you put it - Right Click on it - RUN AS ADMIN

Malwarebytes - free
http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Run the Microsoft Malicious Removal Tool

Start - type in Search box -> MRT  find at top of list - Right Click on it - RUN AS ADMIN.

You should be getting this tool and its updates via Windows Updates - if needed you can download it here.

Download - SAVE - go to where you put it - Right Click on it - RUN AS ADMIN
(Then run MRT as above.)
