I wouldn't put much faith in some of these XP services lists as they haven't been updated to reflect changes with the introduction of SP2.

True but most of the things that dont need to be running are still there.


As far as formatting, that is a last resort, I would try everything else first, after all you have nothing to lose.

Also true, but can save a lot of time trying to find a solution.

are you sure of the file scvhost.exe, as that can be a worm or virus, whereas svchost.exe is a valid Windows file?

Also true, so a good full scan for worm/trogen/virus should be done.
