Default svchost.exe

Whenever my computer starts I get a message saying, "Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\softreg\svchost.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search." I click OK then I get another message saying, "Could not load or run 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\softreg\svchost.exe' specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry."
Should I be concerned about these messages? What should I do to fix this problem?

It's likely you're svchost.exe file has become corrupt somehow. Try clicking Start>>Run and type in "SFC /scannow" You will need to insert you're XP disc, that is assuming you're using XP.

If I repair my windows installation will I need the CD key? Unfortunately, I do not know where the CD key is.
