A few hours ago, A Trojan got into 1 of my pcs and, Now, the Trojan was detected after it launched it selfâ€¦
Okay folks I wanna delete it and,
Norton will detect it but,
will not delete or take action the running process is: svchost.exe
Now, I used google.com and, it said this was a MS process but,
its not! Its a trojan in disguise as a regular process.
Now, here is the side effects of the trojan:
I can not shut down my pc at all. The PC stays on no matter what I do. I can hit Reset button and, it still stays on I have to pull the power cord out of the PC. ...despite all my efforts the process can not be terminated not even with taskmanager!!! Nothing stops it I even tried msconfig.exe
looked at all the services & startups and, I unchecked everything! And, the trojan STILL started up with windows...please help me...I dont wanna format this pc and, start over...lot of registered apps on it...and, its a massive 1 TB HDD
When I try to close it...it tricks windows...
saying: Not responding then, I minute later its still running again....there is really no way to stop it...> Its a nasty spyware.
BTW, This svchost.exe Process is not from MS...
its a fake I right clicked it and, its not from MS I have a screen shot and, I tried safemode and, still can not delete it. I went to Norton site to the site for removal and, its a
generic Trojan Horse is a
startup keys & services in the registry
and, there is nothing that starts up with svchost.exe and, Im scanning with mcafee and, still nothing...Im stumped!
Scanning with mcafee & it detects it but, wont remove it access denied! This spyware thought of everything!
I tried the boot from dos command with a floppy disk to delete the file
And, it saids it cant delete it (protected file)
I have spybot installed and, it detects nothing
I even tried enditall where it kills all running process and, guess what? Its still running but, in not responding....and, I use taskmanager to close and, it stays there & doesnt even say any error messages! So, what would u recommend next?
