Hi dear folks,
Firstly, I just installed windows XP OS service pack2 to another HD (IDE-1) from the slave drive position, but after having installed the OS, the SYSTEM didn’t recognize the BOTH DVD & CD-ROM drive and I checked in the DEVICE MANAGER; both of the optical drive shows yellow sign,
Secondly, and another problem is that after start the PC, a red caution sign pops up in the windows every boot time;
SVCHOSL.EXE
WINDOWS CANNOT FIND ‘SVCHOSL.EXE’. MAKESURE YOU TYPED THE NAME CORRECTLY, AND THEN TRY AGAIN TO SEARCH FOR A FILE, CLICK THE START BUTTON, AND THEN CLICK SEARCH.
I will be waiting for your important reply!

Go here:

If you are not happy altering the registry then use the "Fix it" button in the 'fixit for me' section on that page. If your internet is slow it might take a few moments for the button to appear.

You might then need to restart the computer afterwards before it is fixed.

If this gets you anywhere I would then download, update and run the freebie MalwareBytes.

Firstly, I downloaded the avast virus scanner to get rid off the SVCHOSL.EXE problem, but it didn’t helped me out.
Secondly, Why DVDRW-ROM & CD-ROM drive is missing from my computer (or from system)? And I checked the cable and connection is ok!

Avast is OK but it won't find and fix everything, especially afterwards.

We should get rid of the SVCHOSL.EXE virus before anything else.
First Run the fix from the link I suggested in #1.

After that we can have a look at the DVD/CD issues if they still remain.

HI Derek,
I ran the fix from the link… and it removed the SVCHOSL.EXE. But right now the problem is that the DVDRW-ROM & CDROM-DRIVE are still missing from My computer, and I checked in the DEVICEMANAGER to check those drives; it shows yellow cautioned sign.
How do I make those drives appear in My computer?
I will be waiting for your important reply?
Thanks!

That's good news.

Firstly I would run Avast, then MalwareBytes freebie. MalwareBytes often finds and fixes what AV's miss. The reason is that we want to be reasonably sure that your computer is virus free before we do anything else.

After the above, there is one thing worth trying to cure your drives problem:
Go to Device Manager, expand the error items out to find the item that has problems.
On each one of these errors, right click and select Uninstall. Once you have done this restart your computer. Just for information the word Uninstall is perhaps a bit misleading beause when you reboot it will find the settings/software again and re-install it. The hope is that it well then put it right.

Hi Derek,
I ran only AVAST (FULL SYSTEM SCAN) to remove any virus, and it given NO THREAT FOUND;and I don't have MALWAREBYTES software; Anyway after that I went to DEVICEMANAGER to uninstall the yellow cautioned optical drives, and after that I did reboot the PC, but the problem is still exists, I mean those drives (DVDRW-ROM & CDROM) are still missing from MY COMPUTER, and the device manager still shows yellow sign. Lastly I checked the connection for those drives are ok.
I will be waiting for your important reply!
Thanks!
