The prolem appear at Windows startup which is - Windows cannot find 'C:\windows\svchost.exe.' - And when I hit ok the second window appear which is - Could not load or run 'C\windows\svchost.exe.' specified in the registry -
I was encouraged to post here after a little reading in this forum. Anyway. I'm going to paste my log here as I understand its the way to do to get help by the experts! I didn't use the latest version of Hijackthis , but here is my log anyway. If there is anything i should add please tell me about it:

It can't find it in C:\windows because it's in C:\windows\system32 which is where mine is. I don't know why it's looking for it there in the windows directory. Are you sure you copied the error message correctly? According to your log, the file is there. You could copy it to the windows directory to see what happens.

The rest of your log looks ok.
