Can't help.  Sorry.  But it's interesting that I'm having the same problem.

This is you being attacked by the worm that has been going around while connected to the internet. You should probably check with anti virus software that you have not been affected.

Definitely the worm. Last week on my W2K machine, svchost kept crashing and then my anti-virus caught the msblaster after it was loaded.

Patch your machine right away.

And once you've done that, let us know why you didn't patch--I for one am curious. (And believe there are lots of possibly valid reasons)

Yep I fixed a friends machine infected by blaster and one of the symptoms was svchost crashing. Run windows update.

... and install a firewall, ready for the next breach of security in Windows :-)

BTW, does someone know why Windows needs to keep all those ports open (TCP/UDP 135, 137-139, 445), even on a client host that shares no resource?

You need to disable the services.

Thx for the link Amour (great name :-)), but the article would be even better if it explained the consequences of shutting down all those services.
