As soon as I log onto the net, the error message svchost.exe has generated an error and then It is impossible to surf around the net. What is svchost.exe and can it be fixed?

It could be one of many things but you could be infected with a virus.

Do this:
go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

;)
