    This pops up consecutively upon startup, and I am having a very hard time tracking down the problem.


    Any hints or suggestions? :?

    Turn DEP off. This should solve your problems... If not. what he said ^^^

    Something I found while googling + i've had to deal with DEP before.

    Alot of viruses disguise themselves as svhost.
    Able to run a scan? ~Possibly using a different OS or computer?

    This is my aunt's laptop, I'd rather save formatting as a last resort.

    It isn't a virus.

    I'm not going to turn of DEP, that just isn't an option. The laptop is connected to the Internet 24/7
