    Every time I open my PC, an error window comes up saying, "WINDOWS CANNOT FIND SCVHOSTS.EXE, MAKE SURE YOU TYPED THE NAME CORRECTLY AND THEN TRY AGAIN. TO SEARCH FOR A FILE, CLICK THE START BUTTON AND THEN CLICK SEARCH."
    I scanned and repaired my system using Windows Care but the error message still shows up. My system becomes slow only when i am trying to open a word document for the first time when i start the computer. Otherwise, it's fast.

    Press alt+ctrl+delete click the tab processes and see if svchost.exe is listed there?
