5 SCVHOST.EXE's running?

Q: 5 SCVHOST.EXE's running?

Yes, i have 5 scvhosts.exe running, all taking up over 2k memory highest @ 15k i believe i imagine there is something i should be worrying about...but then yet again i could be wrong, any suggestions?

thanks

A: 5 SCVHOST.EXE's running?

That is around the usual number. If you don't have the process owner column enabled in Task Manager, you might want to put that one in. Many malware apps that use svchost.exe will run under one of the user accounts instead of a network or system account.

windows is playing audio files in the background with nothing up and running. Found by terminating the scvhost.exe file that was being a memory hog killed the audio issues, but the audio comes back.

Hello all New here ...

I have a problem with my Windows XP Machine. It is locking up at Random times. if I end the process on the svchost.exe the computer won't lock up again unless I restart. I thought it was a Virus so I scanned my Laptop and found nothing. I think Downloaded the fix Blaster and it didn't find anything either. I Ran all the Windows updates and also did a scan for spyware on the Laptop nothing was found. I am not sure what is causing this. I am not getting any errors and like I said its locking at Random however when it locks I can still use the mouse and the ALT Tab keys but I cannot do anything in any application. any ideas on this ?

Thanks .

This is a virus/worm of some sort. When was the last time you updated your antivirus software?

Sometimes the virus can be determined by looking at the startup items. Hit Start, Run, msconfig. List what all is in the startup tab. To save time, you can look each item up at this site and see if any indicate a virus:
Start-Up Applications

Hi, my computer was recently infected with the scvhost.exe, i use AVG and it detected the virus and i deleted it, but everytime i reboot my computer, a message pops up and it says "Windows cannot find 'scvhost.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." it slows down the booting time of my com and slows it down overall. I have read that the scvhost.exe virus is dangerous and can give away personal information and much more. I am afriad that this will happen and i need to get rid of this before i can normally use my computer again.

i read through this thread : http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/555178-solved-cannot-find-scvhost-exe.html
and im not entirley sure what to do because my computer and log file may be different than the one in the thread.

can someone kindly advise me and tell me what to do?
please and thankyou

p.s and yes i understand that scvhost.exe and svchost.exe are 2 entirely different things.

I don't know if I should keep it or remove it. I have read both sides of the story for svchost.exe. ProcessLibrary says: http://www.processlibrary.com/directory/files/scvhost/

Don't know where this person got it from (found it on another forum).

SUMMARY
This article describes Svchost.exe and its functions. Svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs).
MORE INFORMATION
The Svchost.exe file is located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services portion of the registry to construct a list of services that it needs to load. Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services, so that separate services can run, depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This allows for better control and easier debugging.

Svchost.exe groups are identified in the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Svchost

Each value under this key represents a separate Svchost group and is displayed as a separate instance when you are viewing active processes. Each value is a REG_MULTI_SZ value and contains the services that run under that Svchost group. Each Svchost group can contain one or more service names that are extracted from the following registry key, whose Parameters key contains a ServiceDLL value:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Service

Q: Scvhost

I've got this trojan that just won't let go of my system. when i first got it, it wanted to get through my firewall, but i didn't let it, so no biggie. but now i get this error message every time i start the comp, cuz it's banging at the wall, trying to get through:this shows up three times at boot.i keep running ad-aware, and i keep removing this "windows" entry, but every time i run it, it's back:i think it's lodged itself in my scvhost-process. this is what my firewall tells me:AVG and Symantec W32.GaebotFixTool both finds nothing. Please help!

A:Scvhost

Svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that are run from dynamic-link libraries called DLLs. This is a valid system process that belongs to the Windows Operating System which handles processes executed from DLLs. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services portion of the registry to construct a list of services that it needs to load. Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services. Therefore, separate services can run, depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This grouping of services permits better control and easier debugging. If svchost.exe is running as a startup/shows in msconfig, this can be bad. See here and here.Also make sure of the spelling. If its scvhost.exe this a trojan. See here and here.You can download and use Process Explorer by Sysinternals to investigate all processes and gather additional information to identify and resolve problems. This tool will show the process CPU useage, a description and its path.One of the ways that malware tries to hide is to give itself the same name as a critical system file like svchost.exe. However it then places itself in a different location on your computer. In XP, the legitimate Svchost.exe file is located in your system folder: C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe Other legitimate copies can be found in the following folders:C:\I386C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\C:\WINDOWS\...

A:cant find scvhost

Hi and welcome

I have split your post off into your own thread. In the future if you have a Question/Problem please start a "New Thread".
It gets too confusing trying to address two different people's problem in the same thread and you may get overlooked.

Please continue in this thread.

Download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
--------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

I recently got a virus on my computer due to me being stupid, the symptoms are... well it seems theres some kind of video being streamed continuously i can hear noise but cant see any picture, even after i restarted it started to play some strange audio clip like an interview in the background, anyways, thats all the symptoms im experiencing right now, if anyone could take a look at my logs that'd be great, i included 3 different logs!

Thanks in advance for any help.

Just to add a little more information (theres no edit button on this forum), ive noticed the process udphost.exe taking up a huge amount of memory (270,000 +) since the infection. i use the task manager process list frequently i have never noticed this process before.

Anyways, i hope this bit of information will help make a diagnosis, please let me know if you need more information i will try my best.

A:I have a virus. (scvhost.exe)

Hello everyone, I believe I have become infected with a virus having to do with udphost.exe, scvhost.exe and svchost.exe. If i open the task manager under processes i can see svchost.exe has duplicated itself 15+ times, taking up large amounts of memory and cpu usage and the most obvious symptom, I am hearing random audio clips on my speakers. Below are the results of the DDS scan.

Thank you in advance for any help.

A:scvhost.exe problem?

Hi -

Are ALL Windows Updates installed, including Vista SP1 and SP2?

www.update.microsoft.com

SP1/ SP2 Prepwork - http://jcgriff2.com/0x1/Vista_SP_Prepwork.html

The article to which you refer is dated 30 April 2007, just 3 months after the public release of Vista.

I would suggest the removal of Ad-Aware. Reboot upon completion.

Install MSE - http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

I have run an avg scan it came up with this scvhost.exe corruptable file. I'm sure that it's the conficker worm I've been educating myself on but I'm a beginner and have very little knowledge about how to fix things. I also saw a couple of other posts on this forum for the similar thing but read on here not to follow the steps in another forum because it may not be applicable to my laptop. Please be patient with me! My computer is very slow and I have a program running 'svchost' or 'service' and using a lot of memory in the 'task manager'. Computer is backed up with all the essential files so good to go there. I read the post on posting information from the hijack and dds and whatever else that was. I will post below.

Hello all. I posted originally in the "Am I infected?" section, and posted logs from Security Check, FSS, MiniToolbox, MBAM, MB Rootkit,  and rKill over there, was informed that I had an MBR infection, and directed here.
For a quick overview, for the past few days, my computer has been running at 100% CPU, courtesy of the scvhost (netscvs).exe process, but none of the services associated with it seemed to be using a significant amount of CPU themselves, and while my malware and virus programs had found a couple of infections, none of them seemed to be the issue.Original Thread Herehttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/504128/netsvcs-has-cpu-at-100/

I'm running an XP SP3 box, fully updated, with Avast free antivirus and Comodo free firewall. I clean the disk daily with CCleaner and the registry weekly with CCleaner. Most of everything works OK but the PC is very slow to shut down and shutdown often hangs. Also, I have a significant number of Javascript errors with IE8, and occasional system freezes when any software is scanning the disks and I try to do something with IE8 at the same time. I scanned all hard drives with Avast; Spybot Search & Destroy; Adaware; TrendMicro's Housecall, RootkitBuster and CWSShredder. The only one that found anything was CWSShredder, which claimed that it removed CWS.Scvhost. But when I run CWS Shredder repeatedly, it makes the same claim each time asnd the syptoms remain. I conclude that the CWS infection persists.I followed the instructions on the Preparation Guide Page and enclose the logs below in the hope that someone can instruct me on how to disinfect.==================================defogger_disable by jpshortstuff (29.01.10.1)Log created at 12:26 on 06/02/2010 (Steve)Checking for autostart values...HKCU\~\Run values retrieved.HKLM\~\Run values retrieved.Checking for services/drivers...-=E.O.F=-=====================================DDS (Ver_09-12-01.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Steve at 12:30:25.04 on Sat 02/06/2010Internet Explorer: 8.0.6001.18702 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_18Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.2047.1027 [GMT -5:00]AV...

My brother is having problems with a scvhost virus. His anti virus keeps popping up telling him of the threat, but running the anti virus doesn't find anything. Same with Microsoft Essentials and Spyware software. MSE also pops up warning of the threat, but again doesn't remove it. The virus appears to be trying to load an exe as it keeps filling up his Temp folder with garbage messages. He is running Win 7 Home Premium. Anyone found a way of removing this virus. I have read several pages on this from Google search, but most just link to the dowload of software which needs to be paid for and which may not be any better than his existing Anti Virus software in removing this threat.

A:scvhost virus

Might use something like CCleaner and just use the cleaner part to clean the temp files, and type system configuration in the start menu and look under the startup tab to see if you can see any suspicious startup item, and disable it. Or if you're not sure, post a screenshot of it.

Then try downloading something like Malwarebytes, update it, and boot into safe mode and run a full scan, maybe scan with MSE in safe mode too.

Does the AV give any full name of the virus?

I get this error message, not right away but eventually when my computer boots up and more likly when I use the internet via my dial up connection. It tends to occure when I click on web links and start downloading programs. The error message says

"svchost.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows you will have to restart the program."

I'm running win 2k and checking my computer management tools I can see the error event. which reads

Type Error Event ID:4097
The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was 800706BF from line 42 of . \eventsystemobj.cpp. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.

The problem effects tasks like copying and pasting, opening link in new browser and clicking on properties of icons. Possibly more but these are the only problems I've identified.

Another thing to note, from this problem I reinstalled windows 2000 on another Partision (spell) so I now have 2 copies of windows on my computer and they both have this problem. I'm not sure whats wrong and how to fix, please help!.

thx, Davo.

A:Scvhost.exe Any Ideas?

Hi sevenlayer cookie. Welcome to BC.What you have done is shut down services essential to the proper running of your machine. svchost.exe is a generic name for services and you may find quite a few running at any one time. In your task manager, anything related to SYSTEM or SERVICES should not be touched unless you know exactly what you are doing - check info in the tabs at the top of any page here.HiJack This is a diagnostic tool for the use of experts only and I would strongly recommend that you use it only to post to this board if you have a problem. Read about it HERE.In the meantime, I would suggest that you run a 'system restore' back to before you altered things.Let us know how you get on.Cheers

I noticed a thread back in June where someoen had a problem with downloading through scvhost.exe. My problem is Uploading whan I am on the net.
There can be as many as 80-100 open ports all connected through scvhost.exe and as "HOST" names. I have loaded all makes of Spyware/Malware programmes and all come up with nothing. So I can only presume if a virus then it is hiding behind the host file. I removed Norton as it seemed to have a link to this and then loaded Kaspersky. Still the same. As much as 1.6Gb are being uploaded on a 12 hour cylcle. It does not seem to slow my computer down as the uploading speed is low.
The last thread spoke about removing BITS. Does anyone have any advice.

A:Serious UpLoading through scvhost.exe

It's worth trying to find out what it's uploading, I think, as that could help narrow down the culprit.

If you could do this...Open Resource Monitor (type-search for it in Start menu)
Go to the Network tab. This lists all processes using networking features.
Tick any svchost.exe entires in the top window.
Have a look through the lower windows to see if there's anything in there that could help, such as local/remote IP addresses.
It sounds like you may have already had a look at this, or at least something similar, but if not, do so

Hello, I've seen this in a few entries, please help...
 
svchost.exe (netsvcs) consumes the available RAM. Sometimes I can close it in the resource monitor and it will remain active at a much lower RAM consumption without locking up the computer, sometimes I can only close it once then it comes back and trying to close it results in an access denied message.
 
The computer is an Inspiron 530 with 4GB RAM. I'm not sure what other information to include, I stopped having any real computer savvy around the time Pentiums came out.

Scvhost.exe Trojan Help!
I was having problems with screen lockup/100%cpu, and on one reboot my Firewall asked if I still wanted to block this Scvhost. Not knowing what to do I asked for help and was told to d/ld a fix called FxGaobot from Symantec.

I followed the instructions given...

1. Swtich OFF system restore
2. Unplug your modem
3. Go into Safe Mode and run FxGaobot.

I did this and the scan came back CLEAN! Still in safe mode I ran a program called Xoftspy and that came up saying I had Scvhost in my registry.

I then ran Regedit and ran a search on it for Scvhost it came up and I deleted it I ran it again for a 2nd time and it came up again, again I deleted it and same on the 3rd scearch.

The 4th time I ran the search it came up clean.

I came out of Safe Mode and rebooted back into normal Windows, I ran Regedit again and did another search for Scvhost just to see if it had been deleted in Safe Mode. Again like in Safe Mode the search found Scvhost 3 times and 3 times I deleted it, all this when I was still unplugged from the modem and with system restore still switched off.

So with system restore switched off and my PC unplugged from the modem and in Safe Mode I ran the FxGabot tool and it came back clean. I then found Scvhost 3 times in my Registry and deleted it 3 times and the 4th search on the registry came back clean.

Then when back in normal Windows I again find Scvhost in my registy and deleted it again , again unplugged from my modem and with system r... Read more

I got a virus from a link asking for my opinion on if my friend should post pictures of us on facebook.com with a corresponding link. I of course clicked on the link and got a virus that sends out the same link to everyone on my buddylist. I searched for the filename, and deleted it (C:/windows/system32/svchost.exe). Ive been searching various forums for hours and hours with no luck on fixing it on my own. I updated spybot search and destroy, norton, beta 1 (from microsofts homepage), and beta 2. All of which couldnt find the file. I went into task manager to try and end the process and process tree (theres like 8 svchost.exe processes running simultaneously). When I end the process it just restarts itself. When i choose the legitimate file it obviously starts shutting down my pc. I downloaded hijackthis and Im semi-familiar with what its telling me, but i dont know wat to do with the information im getting, and im not confident enough in doing anything with the information that i think i may be interpurting correctly. Please help me and thank you for your time. here is my hijackthis log:Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 5:53:45 PM, on 2/27/2006Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Running processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system...

I have a virus in the System32 directory called svchost.exe
Avast says it's trying to connect to an URL and blocking it but the message keeps popping up
I am now trying to download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to remove it but every time I try to download something it's failing because apparently it contains a virus. I have tried to download other programs too and I keep getting the same message. I'm thinking it has something to do with the svchost virus.

Does anyone know how to remove it?

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I just didn't know where to post.

I've got a virus that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware keeps on detecting, quarantining, and "deleting", but that keeps coming back. It's an scvhost file and in the task manager it is described as winrscmde.

I've come to understand that Trojans like these need to be analyzed and thoroughly cleaned out, and am hoping someone can help me get rid of this. Symptoms include blue screening, computer locking up, scvhost process taking up all CPU and memory, and sometimes the inability to repair on startup.

Is it because i am using microsoft updates and not windows updates
 

A:scvhost.exe problem

Svchost.exe is a valid generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services part of the registry to construct a list of services that it must load. Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time.

isn't this odd?

this is my tasklist /SVC I do not have more svchosts here than in the Task Manager so maybe everything is okay. Maybe it just means that there are processes that I can't get to.

I recently installed Mc Afee Firewall and it continually logs that scvhost.exe is attempting to aaccess the internet. It tells me that:
outbound UDP/IP port 666[Nok, Nok, (trojan)]
In another thread I found a link that tells me that port 666 is used for internet service called "DOOM" and that it is a network game.
Mc Afee online tech support can only tell me that scvhost is a Windows file(no kidding?... )
Can somebody tell me whats going on?

A:windows cant find scvhost exe please help

If it is spelled as you indicated, scvhost.exe, that is not good.

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

I have two computers with windows 7 and both are having the same problem. scvhost is taking up over 50% of the CPU most of the time. I have attached screen shots of task manager. any help would be greatly appreciated

 

A:scvhost taking up half CPU

Right click on the 50% SVCHOST one and select properties to show what is running under that.
It may well be WUAUSERV which does take up a lot of time nowadays and if you have a dual core CPU is probably correct.
It is looking for required updates and will go away till next month once they are processed.
I let mine run overnight; it takes so long.

Just had something pop up out of nowhere. It's making my laptop act pretty strange, with a combination of redirects (get-search-results.com), Avast URL blocks, and freezing up. The only thing that is consistent is the name recognized by Avast, "URL::MAL" and that it is coming through svchost.exe. I have updated and ran MalwareBytes numerous times, it recognizes issues, but after deletion and restart there is no change.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi! Today after restarting my windows 7 computer I logged in and tried to open up google chrome. When it didn't work i checked task manager and the process was there but nothing was happening. I then tried to open firefox then Iexplorer but they only showed
up as a process but nothing loaded.
I then noticed that I had multiple PC issues. I checked them and it said that my norton antivirus was turned off! I immediately tried to start it but yet again only the process and nothing else. So I looked at my ram usage and it was at %47 which
with nothing running is bad because I have 8Gb of ram! 
So i clicked to see processes from all users and saw that svchost.exe was using 1.5-2Gb of ram. I wouldn't mind it using that much at all but when it freezes my computer and turns off my antivirus i get upset. So i ended it and everything loaded at once.
It was like i turned on a light switch. I exited everything out and went to chrome to check if others had my issue and noone that i can find has so here i am.
While searching for answers it came back on multiple times (mostly when i tried to either reload a tab or open a new tab.) I am just wondering if this is common and if it is it must be fixed.

If you know anything about this I would like the help. Thanks

Hi,
Firstly, please check the issue with clean boot:
How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8

If the issue persists, we need to find which service may cause the issue. In task manager, please right-click on the svchost process which uses a lot of memory and select ?Go to Service(s)?; then the services will be highlighted in Services tab. Please let
us know their names.
For more information about svchost process related troubleshooting, please also refer to:

Welcome to BC WhammerOne or more of the identified infections is related to a nasty rootkit componet. Rootkits are very dangerous because they use advanced techniques as a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information which they send back to the hacker. Many rootkits can hook into the Windows 32-bit kernel, and patch several APIs to hide new registry keys and files they install. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans and rootkits as part of an exploit to to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge. If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, you should immediately disconnect from the Internet until your system is cleaned. All passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach.Although the rootkit has been identified and may be removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because the rootkit has been removed the computer is now secure. Many experts in th... Read more

Thank you in advance for your support. I have combed threads and tried fixes myself though none have produced any good result.

Problem * When i click a link after searching something on google, yahoo or whatever i ALWAYS get a redirect and must copy/paste the direct URL to actually get to the site. From this I did some searching to find what may be the cause and read to check my processes. Upon checking processes I noticed constant popups from malwarebytes denying access to scvhost.exe trying to access websites. Right now as I type my scvhost.exe *32 winrscmde (not host proc...) like every other one. stacks constantly and I end the process around 700-900k every time.

Fixes * I have run adaware se personal, malwarebytes, spybot s&d. Malwarebytes finds a trojan with scvhost and prompted to remove it. I required a restart and i did so. It then just ran the scan again and repeated the process.

Here are the logs you asked for.

Hello,
I am new to posting on this forum, although I have gotten several answers from the people here based on similar questions others have already asked. But here is my problem:

When I start my computer (starting yesterday, 1/24/12,) after less than an hour of it being on, even if not doing anything. I get an error message saying:

"Visual C++ Runtime Library

Program:c:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe

This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information."

I have seen similar issues posted, but none for the "c:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe"
Other problems dealt with a specific program, but this is not just a recent download or program I installed.

After this message comes up, I lose audio from programs (like Youtube, online radio, etc.) and I have to go to the services page to start it again. And if I didn't have anything running, like firefox or task manage when the error came up, I can not open anything and have to restart.
Also, my normal (standard) windows xp toolbar on the bottom of the desktop and windows designs turn into what looks like the design from Windows 95 or something. Sometimes they change back to normal, sometimes they don't.

I have a Dell Desktop and running Windows XP Home Edition, Version 2002, with Service Pack 3.
So far, I have tried disabling non-Microsoft start-ups in msconfig but that did not seem to work.

I think I removed the trojan file called scvhost.exe but not the way I was supposed to, so now everytime I boot my system I get the following message:

" Windows cannot find 'scvhost.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. "


How do I get rid of this?

Also I accidentally removed my hosts file, how do I get it back?

G'Day Pvisagi,

These are the problems you face when you do things that you are not too sure of; when we have succeeded with this task, we will look into ensuring that your system is 'clean' from any other "nasties".

This is my recommendation...you will need to do a "Repair Installation of Windows? XP."

The Windows? XP CD will be required for this procedure.

(In the event that you do not have a Windows? XP CD with SP2, you will need to 'borrow' one from a friend or colleague, as the manufacturer's "Recovery Discs" will not work in this instance.)

Please Note: Performing a ?Repair Installation? in this manner does not delete any Personal Files, it just 'repairs' the core of the installation.


Restart the computer and as soon as it starts to 'fire up' continually tap the Delete Key so that access can be made into the BIOS...once in here, reset the boot order this way...

? CD/DVD
? HDD
? Floppy/Other device (if you don't have a floppy).

Another key may be required to enter the BIOS please consult your Computer?s Owners Manual (if available).

Insert the Windows? XP SP2 CD in the Drive; then, Save and Exit the BIOS.

Reboot the computer; a screen will appear, that says... Boot from CD.... Press any key to Boot from CD... follow the instruction...it will then progress to a Blue screen and load the basic drivers.

During this procedure, there will be an option to hit ... Read more

I've been dealing with a recurring infection that seems to originate from the file C:/Windows/svchost.exe. Nothing I come up with can delete the file, and if I don't close the process immediately after it starts running (it uses 1GB of memory!), I pick up the System Fix infection. Malwarebytes acknowledges there's an infection, but it can't delete it properly. I'm at a loss!

Edit: I've researched similar infections and no suggestions for removing those have worked for me, except temporarily.

My computer started running very slowly so I ran Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware to see if I had an infection. Both showed infections so I removed them but the problem continued. Now when I run them I still get a trojan infection called scvhost.exe and even if I remove it, it is back when the computer turns back on.

Every since I upgraded my computer from Windows XP to Windows Vista, my CPU Usage has been very very unstable.

LIke when I turn on the computer, there always seem to be program running and my CPU usage goes up and down, as high as ninety percent, nonstop and like after an hour or so stays between 10 percent to 50 percent.

another problem is my memory. Just opening up the computer and logging into my account, 80 percent of my memory is being used. I looked in the Windows Task manager and found that a great portion of this memory is being used by the svchost.exe which is also taking up most of the cpu usage; and yet after i tried shutting down all the programs that might take up use of CPU, I can still hear the noises the of computer running programs in the background.

I have a hp laptopo dv 6100, with CPU AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-5-, and 990MB RAM

I have run different online scanners as well as my Norton AV, Malwarebytes, and Defender, and am fairly confident I am virus free. However, when going through the Norton Log, I came across numerous instances of where it blocked scvhost from accessing different processes. I downloaded UniBlues Process QuickLinks, to help decypher what process is what, and saw that for svchost.exe it can either be a legitimate process, or about 3 or 4 different Trojans. How on earth do you tell the legit processes apart from the virus? I understand that svchost process is needed to launch .dll files, and is legit, but can't find any info on how to tell a legit instance of it from a virus; other than understanding that enabling heuristic detection on Norton analyzes how something is running (which I always keep cranked up to High, or agressive)

Thanks for helping me understand this! ;-)

A:scvhost.eve - process or virus

Instances of svchost.exe located in the windows\system32 folder will be legitimate. Elsewhere probably malware. You can determine this by adding the "command line" column in Task Manager, details tab. Don't confuse svchost.exe with scvhost.exe which would usually be malware. The name similarity is deliberately intended to cause confusion.

A:Explorer.exe & Scvhost.exe Errors

Hello there and welcome to Bleeping Computer's security forum.My name is David, I will be helping you with your log today.Your system is terribly infected. The problem with these infections nowadays is, it causes a lot of damage. Even if we clean the malware off your system, I can't guarantee that your system will be clean afterwards, because these infections/bundles leave a lot of leftovers behind that most scanners won't even recognise and logs won't show. Also, I can't promise you we can repair all the damage it caused... Even after cleaning the malware, you can still get errors afterwards because of the damage. Solving these is not always possible since it will be searching for a needle in a haystack to find the right cause and solution. So, we can try to clean this up and do what we can, but keep in mind that we can't solve ALL problems this malware already caused. Due to the status of some of the files you have on your computer, I strongly recommend that you do the following immediately. Disconnect the infected computer from the internet until the computer can be cleaned. From a clean computer, change all your online passwords-- for email, for banks, eBay, forums etc.... Do not change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. It is a good idea to print off these instructions:This will be useful as there is a possibility some of the instructions will need to be carried ou... Read more

My system is possessed! I have run numerous anti-malware tests (malwarebytes) etc, all updated, and they find nothing.
My SCVhost file is running overtime. Actually, there are several scvhost running. This one, according to Anvir, is the one dealing with automatic updates. Confirmed by Task Manager.
Which is somewhat to be expected because the system has a failed update for MS NET framework, v 2 and v 3.5 service pack 1.
Any thoughts/suggested fixes. NO, it is not malware!

Recently I was getting physical memory issues on Windows 7 32Bit since it only allows 3.5gb of ram but I have 6gbs. Where as scvhost.exe was hogging about 1,500,000KB's which is about 1.5GB's of memory most of the time which ate up a lot of physical memory.

I decided to reformat my computer to Windows 7 64bit which allowed me to fully use my 6gbs of ram. But scvhost.exe still hogs up around the same amount. I'm not sure if its normal or not, but I wanted to check because I've never really had this problem & I did notice my computer being a little slower than normal.

A:Windows 7, scvhost.exe hogging up ram.

Click the checkbox next to the problematic svchost.exe then go to CPU and expand the "Services" pane. There is something about about that svchost.exe process. I don't have a single one that shows up without "svchost.exe (Something here)"

Hello,

I hope I am doing this correctly. I got infected with the fake "System Fix" program. I seemed to have gotten rid of the program, but still have remnants. I am getting constant warnings from Avast about the scvhost.exe file. I did the following:

1. Windows 7 backup and system restore (non-destructive where the programs had to be reinstalled but the data remained. I have since discovered that it was a waste of time since I apparently backed up the malware too)

2. Malware bytes (quick scan) - discovered Trojan.Agent in c:/ windows/svchost.exe . I deleted it and the program said successful

3. Ran spybot S&D, it went crazy with Smitfraud error messages and had to be restarted. I tried and again and was able to complete the scan. It found smitfraud malware and deleted it.

4. I ran a full Malware bytes scan. Now I have found 3 problems:

1. Trojan.Agent in c:/Backup/Russell/AppData/Local/Telp/ywerrtyerw.exe
2. PUP.Adware.OpenInstall in c:/Users/Russell/downloads/downloads/oi_setup.exe
3. Trojan.Agent in c:/Windows/svchost.exe
This is where I am now. The computer works but is very sluggish. Programs and pages take a long time to load, and this wasn't a problem before the "System Fix" infection.

Hi, I got several scvhost.exe processes just like everyone else, except I have one that time and time again is the number one process in the area of memory usage. Why does this particular scvhost.exe take 160k at times and hover around 140k during most other times...?
I am using vista 64 bit and I think, but and not sure it may have something to do with Microsoft update. If anyone knows off hand please tell me. Otherwise I am guessing a hijack this report is needed. Any diagnosis would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hello. I noticed recently that my computer would run slower than normal, web pages would redirect and my computer would freeze if I tried to type anything into the windows search box ( Start>Start Search under All Programs). I use AVG for my anti-virus and Malwarebytes for malware. I ran Malware and it discovered a SVCHOST.EXE in my Windows/System folder. I click to removed it, Malware re-boots and I think it is gone. Then I start seeing that Malwarebytes has blocked access to various IP adresses. So, I run it again and find SVCHOST.EXE is back in the Windows/System folder. So, I searched the web and find several ways to remove it but for XP and none of the registry keys are present for me using Vista. So, I find this site and have followed the preparation guide for assistance. I ran Malwarebytes again and created a log. I also have ran GMER and created a log. I cannot run DDS. For some reason it gets to a certain point and hangs up. I let it run for 45 minutes Tuesday and had to re-boot.

Hi,

I have a bit of a problem, i have been struggling with a virus on my computer lately. I have scanned with avast and also now AVG, and found trojan horses with avast wich I deleted and also a trojan backdoor file with AVG wich has been deleted also now. But still at every re-boot i get several error messeges saying that the system32/scvhost.exe files are missing or corrupt. And also it seems that my administrative options has been decreased when i can't open my task manager, enter the regedit or open certain exe files. An error messege pops up saying that this operation has been cancelled by the administrator, though I am the admin, and there is no other accounts on my computer either..

I would really apprecitate some help here!

First time to use TSF,

Whenever I connect to DSL scvhost.exe appears in processes and then adds itself to the registry microsoft>windows>current version>run and run services. I understand it is part of a worm gaobot but I cannot get rid of it.

I am aware it is similar to svchost.exe and it is not that process.

I end the process and delete it from both registry's and the next time I connect to the DSL it appears and adds itself to the registry. Also, whenever I connect to DSL I monitor the info it sends out and it sends out packets of info like crazy and once I end the process of scvhost the data transmission stops immediately. So it is definitely linked to scvhost.

How do I get rid of this worm, scvhost.exe, and its counterparts permanently?

I run ad-aware 6.0, trend pc-cillin, and have updated windows updates constantly.

I have removed all insignificant programs (aka malware & spyware) from the add/remove programs menu.

I even deleted all suspicious .exe files that were downloaded when my pc wasn't protected under firewall.

By the way, this all happened because my dad never changed the logon password which he claims was by default "1234"

The description of all the viruses and worms we received were because of "weak passwords"

Please help me get rid of scvhost.exe

A:scvhost.exe reappears in processes and registry

welcome to the forum!

your in a scenario that is pretty common. so there are many ways to fix your problem but I will give you one that is maybe the most simple.

1. First stop all the malware/spyware services in your task manager
2. next on the web browse your way to windows update site and update your computer with every critical update there is. if your not running sp2 for xp yet, well now your going to have to. if you install it prepare for a long download, its pretty big. if your running sp2 for xp, then grab all the other updates that show up and as they download monitor your task manager, you will see the spyware/malware service pop up maybe, end it as they show up to help your updates install faster.
4. once your all updated from windows update even with sp2 make sure the firewall turns on if you done have one already be sure to use one!
5. remove the spyware, here is where it lives in your registry:

Open Registry Editor. To do this, click Start>Run, type Regedit, then press Enter.
In the left panel, double-click the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Microsoft>
Windows>CurrentVersion>Run
In the right panel, locate and delete the entry(s):

So i have just noticed ( i have a feeling that his has been going on for a few months) that my svchosts are taking up way to much bandwith. anywhere between 10,00 to 700,000+ bytes/sec (According to resource Monitor)

I have narrowed it down to a few key processes using Process Explorer -Sysinternals. the parent process seems to be wininit.exe

I have uploaded 2 pdf, of pictures from the resource monitor and process Explorer.

I don't believe that this is normal behavior for svchost, and wondering how to make it normal. Also is this a sign of a virus/worm/trojan? I have ran avg and spybot which have found nothing.

Thanks in advance

A:multiple SCVhost's taking up WAY to much bandwith.

This is normal for Windows XP. SVCHost runs and controls many services, processes and portions of Windows from what you listed to the Network you are on.

700,000 bytes is about 7MB which is not much.

wininet.exe is part of the core of Windows.

Hi,

I recently posted in the forms and was told to follow instructions on the preparation guide. I tried following the guide but often times, I was unable to. My problems regarding the logs are:

1. Although dds.scr downloads, my computer thinks its a Solidworks (a 3-D design software) script and every time I click it just produces a txt file with a bunch of gibberish.
2. Whenever I try to run gmer.exe, it crashes. The one time it didn't, I was told mid scan by windows that some 'host?' processes had stopped working. I am pasting to the end of this post what it did 'find' the one time it ran to completion.

Other problems I have include:

1. Spybot and Malwarebytes are not able to find any viruses after the first round removal of viruses (see attachments).
2. After booting maybe 5 minutes in, the computer fan starts spinning fast as a result of scvhost.exe taking up to 70-80% of the cpu and crashes the computer.
3. Redirects to ads from google searches
4. TDSSKiller.exe does not open past 80%
I've tried doing system restores to before when the viruses came and it seems to have no effect. My problem seems to be closely related to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic392645.html. I have also done several Malwarebytes scans recently that result in the detection of

Hi, I just discovered this really nasty virus today, and it's giving me a serious headache. This virus will make svchost.exe take 100% of my cpu, redirect my google searches, and it's disabled my system restore.The odd thing is, that my google searches only get redirected on firefox (my main browser), so if I use google chrome I won't get redirected. And I only get redirected if I search for anything including "scvhost". Clicking on one of the links will take me to a rogue anti virus site, a few times it redirected me to some site called STOPZilla antivirus or something like that, and others were websites to help fix the "scvhost virus".I've tried scanning in safe mode with malwarebytes (full scan), SUPERantispyware, root repeal & RKUnhookerLE and I haven't found anything. I've also tried doing a system restore both in safe mode and in regular, both times I wasn't able to.I really have no idea what to do right now... Please help me!!

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the ...

Hey everyone, first post here. It looks like my symptom is similar to that of the poster beneath me, but in the interest that each case is unique, I'm going to create this separately.
 
The symptom: My laptop starts up and immediately skyrockets to close to 100% RAM usage, dropping randomly from time to time; except for those short intervals, it is totally unusable (and those intervals are so short and infrequent that it's unusable anyways). I could not manage to get a screenshot, so attached is a photo I took with my phone (you will see on there that at that time I had attempted to start Firefox - the issues were occurring otherwise regardless). It appears the issue is being caused by svchost.exe using over 1,000,000K, though I imagine that is a symptom of something else.
 
Some background I think will help:
 
I am using a Lenovo T530 running Windows 7 64-bit with 4GB of RAM; the puppy is about 3 years old.
 
I had begun having issues a couple months ago where the WIFI would drop ("No Internet Connection") for no apparent reason (and others using the same WIFI had no issues). I also noticed what I took to be issues with the sound card - audio would occasionally freeze and scratch, on the speakers or any pair of headphones.
 
Drivers updates seemed to fix those. Shortly after, I started experiencing general severe slowness across the machine and my trackpad ceasing to work from time to time. I did disk clean ups, defragged; took my C drive from being ... Read more

A:Computer totally unusable, scvhost.exe using all my RAM

Try downloading and running Process Explorer.
Hover the mouse over the svchost that is using lots of ram and see what services are running under it.
Provide a screen shot (or picture) if possible.
 
Also download MiniToolbox, check the box for 'last 10 event viewer errors', click 'go' then paste the result with your reply.
