Svchost.exe Application Error Is This A Virus


Recommended Posts

I've been getting this error for about a week & I can't seem to stop it from

popping up.

svchost.exe Application Error

The instructions at 0x00000000 referenced memory at 0x00000000

The memory could not be read

I've run Nod32,Malwarebytes & Superantispyware & no virus is picked up.

I did a search for svchost.exe on my pc & it showed these files.
