Hello guys!
I got a month since i got hit by a "svchost.exe" terrible virus and i have tried a lot of anti viruses with all updates like:
AVG
Symantec end point
Bit defender
But all don't catch the DAMN virus. Now i am really desperate of removing this virus with winrar. The virus seems to duplicate himself, so every time i delete it from D, it reappears again. Pls help me, if anyone of you has experience this type of virus before!

Malwarebytes or MSE would take that out in a heartbeat.

Dunno about the svchost.exe but something similar happened to me. Got it from a USB stick. ALL folders had a "shortcut" in it (name of folder) and opening it made it open the My Computer page. Deleting them made them re-appear when I open the affected folder (ALL). Dunno exactly what I did, but safemode + Avast must've done something right.

svchost.eve is a legitimate part of windows, Or are you saying that a virus is masquerading as it or infected it ?

probably something like Win32/Conficker possibly, as that infects and hides itself in that .exe

I've run into quite a few nasty infections that like to "run" that about 4-8 times more than there should be in processes. (Maybe trying to hide itself as a legit exe?)

Yeah you are totally right!
It consumes so much of processing power that i hardly open internet and there are a lot of svchost.exe in task manager, but only one changes from time to time! Like from 0% to 100% of processes T_T
Anyway, i click end process, but than the computer sound does not function as there is no sound card at all! And the windows theme changes like that old thingy of windows 2000 :(
PLS help me as i am very desperate in removing this virus.

I have been running MSE on computers at work and comparing it to AVG, Avast, Comodo, Norton, and a few others. While it lacks the seeming intelligence and finish of others, nothing escapes it, it does seem to have issues after a couple months of running with needing a reboot to clear itself and make things right where others like AVG are always on and switched on.


However for a lightweight laptop anti-virus or for machines with lacking specs it is great.


I give it 7/10 mushroom stamps.

MSE is my free choice as well, with kaspersky being the paid alternative i reccomend.


MSE plays nice, for example it detects some IP scanners i have as 'legal' but 'potentially dangerous' - it doesnt go and scream "OMG GENERIC.WIN32.NOTAVIRUS HAS BEEN DETECTED"

I prefer any Anti-virus to AVG, just from personal experience, but then again this is just an opinion.

Alek, I'm currently using ESET Smart Security. It's pretty good IMHO, low memory footprint, fast, also comes in 64-bit, so it's another option for you.

Using NOD32 doesn't cover all threats, as such Malwarebytes and/or other anti-adware is recommendable to install as well.

I'm using ESSET nod32 for the x64.

i got hit by a similiar svchost.exe virus, but i deleted by hand(anti vir sucked).
heres what i did.


* i ran "msconfig" from RUN.
*in that i checked that all the startup and services were the ones i installed. and lucky enough, i found a "AviraAnti Desktop bla bla" thing under startup. i unchecked it immediately. also noted its path. it was in system32 under a self created folder with giberish name.

*next i opened my windows in safe mode. opened winrar, and taskmanager.
*in the winrar, i went to the path of that thing and tried deleting it, it didnt let me.
*then i went to process tab of taskmanager and ended a suspicious looking svchost(luckily that was the one, or else i would have to do trial and error). immediately i deleted that virus from system32. and it happened. did a direct power off and restarted.

* that thing was dead:)

the really hard part was that thevirus was in the system32 and though it was an .exe it appeared as a folder.
also it wasnt letting any of the anti viruses i tried from scanning the system32!!


sorry for the lecture but this is a dire situation solver. :toast:

I know that method, but i didnt use it, cuz the virus is still in your computer and there are some viruses who are "active" of which after dead they never appear again, like humans.
But there are some ADVANCEMENTS in "viruso-technology" that after killing them, they have left the babies to other files... So better not to risk it. Who makes the viruses knows for sure this method ;)
When i worked as an operator an informatics engineer told me that :p
And still i am having ANOTHER PROBLEM with the thumbnails!!!
The names of the photos do not appear T_T
I know this is another kind of virus :(

Reformat and reinstall to remove it. Don't waste time with anything else.

Then put Kaspersky Internet Security on and you'll be alright.

If you're going for free, try the Comodo.
If you want payed stuff, try the ESET.

I'll toss my hat in for Microsoft Security Essentials. Easily it's the lowest impact product I've ever used, and by all reports it is among the leaders in effectiveness.
