Your problem is somewhat confusing. Are you saying you downloaded that file from BC and found it to be infected?

Modservices.zip is not malware. See the discussion here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...mp;#entry332239

This program is simply a program that is used to manipulate your NT services. The difference, though, is it was utilized by hackers before sc.exe or other programs existed. It is a hack tool, but that does not mean its not a valid program.

For example, pskill.exe from sysinternals is picked up as a hack tool as well regardless of how legitimate it is.


Such programs may at times be detected by some anti-virus/anti-malware scanners as a "RiskTool", "Hacking tool", "Potentially unwanted tool", or even "malware (virus/trojan)" when that is not the case. Thus, the scan detections do not necessarily mean the file is malware or a bad program. It means it has the potential for being misused by others. Anti-virus scanners cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert you or even automatically remove them.
