    Everytime I try to play a video nowadays (especially with DIVX Player, but to a lesser extent with Windows Media Player), my computer virtually freezes up. Sometimes the video tries to play, but the audio is usually a few seconds off. Regardless of my success, my computer is always very slow afterwards, and I always have to restart just to do simple tasks like open a Word document or surf the net.

    I've installed a new version of DIVX Player and I checked for updates for Windows Media. I've also run CWS Shredder, Spybot, and McAfee Virus Scan. Is there something on my computer I need to delete?

    I had the same problem when my computer was infected with the jeefo virus. Heres how you check for it

    1> Go to c:\windows (xp) or c:\winnt (2000)
    2> Go through the directory and look for svchost.exe
    3> If its there then you have the virus and if you do dont do anything until you post back here

    Hope this is a solution!

    Have WinXP Pro running on Dell laptop, w/ Windows Media Player Series 9. Have had multiple issues the past few weeks, all of a sudden, where while having WMP, IE, Word, Outlook, Excel, MS Project, etc. all or some combination of WMP plus these, everything will just go as slow as molasses on a winter day in the Artic... :( Only thing that I know can do is command-alt-delete to bring up Task Manager, to slowly and methodically (try) to close each and every application. Very frustrating... :mad:

    Searched and found the following:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe
    File Version: 5.1.2600.0
    Description: Generic Host Process for Win32 Services
    Created/Modified: Thursday, August 29, 2002, 7:00:00 AM
    Accessed: Today
    Size: 12.5KB

    C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download\6ca7b3a8efd5a9b6f87fff395a2eb989
    File Version: 5.1.2600.2180
    Description: Generic Host Process for Win32 Services
    Created/Modified: Wednesday, August 04, 2004, 2:56:57 AM
    Accessed: Today
    Size: 14.0KB

    Also, this link http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/svchost.exe.html says the following:
    Has anyone used this Security Task Manager program?

    At work, I'm quite limited as to what we are allowed to download, install, etc., so if this is indeed the jeefo virus, will have to call IT... which is off-site, in two time zones away [seriously, they are in Phoenix, I'm near Chattanooga. Fun times ;)].

    Thanks for the help! Have scanned w/ this just now per your suggestion, but have not found anything; however, since I can not log on as administrator, guess the scan is somewhat limited in where/what it can search. Have clicked for it to check all files, etc., but nothing. Hmmmmmmm... now what? Do I need to have IT allow me to go into this as an admin? Or, is this virus not really the culprit, and the above mentioned files in my prior post are harmless? An eternity in hades is not nearly long enough for these malware writers... :(

    Unfortunately, the Jeefo program didn't find anything. What should I do now?

    are you saying that svchost.exe is in your c:\windows directory but jeefo didnt find it. Its probably another virus. Go to www.mcafee.com and do a free online virus scan and see what it picks up

    I have McAfee on my computer and it hasn't been detecting any viruses.

    The svchost file is in C:\Windows\System32
