Reboot Failure By Deleted Svchost.exe File
» I had delete svchost.exe file, now my pc cannot reboot. what should i do now?
The exe file runs programs, it is thus one of the most useful types of files, but this also makes it potentially harmful. It can be used as a carrier for viruses or other malicious programs. If one clicks on a malicious exe file, over the next several hours or days the computer might become unstable. Often the user does not relate the problem back to the cause and attributes it to other factors, such as the need to defragment or replace a disk.
In case of a virus infection, personal information or password keystrokes might be handed over to an unknown website without knowledge of the user, or the machine might delete its own files and crash altogether; the system is slowing down and if left on the disk they accumulate trash and blow away your disk space. The infected files grow in size. Any of these scenarios and more can be set in motion by simply clicking on a 'bad' exe file.
The safest and quickest approach, without being bothered to reinstall Windows, is to use a professional repair tool DLL Suite. You simply do as follows:
Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan. And all the problems directly associated with Explorer.exe file are fixed, because of the built-in feature of Fix EXE Virus in the Dashboard menu.

Copy one svchost.exe in a CD/DVD from any other Windows 7 64 bit Operating System. After that you need to Follow the same steps that I given before and you need to start the Command Prompt from the Recovery Console.
- MARY NIELSON replied on January 15, 2013: » How did you delete it? You must've used a virus because you never have to restart your computer after deleting anything. Try starting safe mode by pressing F8 repeatedly after you turn on your computer before the windows logo comes up.
- CHAS MOIO replied on January 16, 2013: » I had tried with safe mode, but still the same.
I can only see the mouse pointer on black screen.
I used AVG to scan, it warned three is a threat in that file.
So I used shift + delete but failed.
Then I used a program called "unlocker" deleted it. After that, it showed "completely delete after the reboot". So I reboot and it stuck in black screen.

Never delete an infected windows file before making sure you have a replacement ready. After this is done would you like for me to take a look at your system to verify the virus has been removed?
