I was able to explore the C drive and found that svchost was also in service files  folder as yours was

I went into command and tried to make the copy to system 32 

once that was done   The system started countng down and is not resetting

befor it reset i looked in system 32 but the svchost file was not there

I put that step in there just to be 100% sure, but if you're up and running you should be fine. Just be sure to do an update!

Ehapi: Is it asking you to overwrite svchost.exe? Then yes.

Re: Received DCOM shutdown immed. after today's update.

HI, I am having the same problem as these guys, will you send me the fix for it.  I can not delete the DAT files, says in use, I copied the CMD lines and went throught the whole thing, restarted and attempted to uninstall/reinstall mcafee security center.  Won't allow me to uninstall  and then starts a countdown to restart computer. Help please...  thank you
