My system keeps reading usb.svchost.exe-no disk whenever I want to transfer files from my laptop to my phone and it equally wipes away all the items on my media folder and when I download an application from the internet it shows ......webinstaller_ALL.exe is not a valid Win32 application

Webinstaller_ALL.exe appears to be associated with some Nokia software so you might uninstall that software and see if the problem goes away. Of course there could be other separate things going on causing problems so it'd be a good idea to run some malware scans too. You could try malwarebytes:

(The download link in the upper right column, not the BS one farther down that says 'start download'.)

Strange, I don't see 'start download' on either IE or Firefox. They both have popup stoppers so maybe that's the reason (unless its been removed).

Please ignore this intrusion.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It shows on my IE after the page fully loads. It's a google ads link. There's some small print underneath it saying it's an advertisment.

Thanks Dave - that explains it, I have quite strong advert blocking. On these boards I've been saying use the green icon top right for MWB from filehippo - better make sure I continue doing so.

Yeah, some of those download sites are loaded up with so much junk you can hardly find the legitimate link.
