Hi

I hope you can help!

I have a problem where a svchost runs and consumes 25% plus CPU power and stops access to the Network Connections folder. If I stop the process it will open the file but it is empty and the svchost restarts. I have 2 network connections on this computer but only one is working - but obviously I can't get to the settings to change it or troubleshoot the other.

I have run Vundofix and this removed a number of files but did not cure the problem, I have run Malwarebytes and this removed some Trojan.Vundo files but still no cure.

Any help in sorting this would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Your best bet would be to post a HijackThis Log in the HJT forum and wait for someone to reply to you. Seems that you have a virus infection.

To get the log:
Please download the self-extracting version of HijackThis from here:

HijackThis Installer Download

Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.

Double-click the file then click the Install button.

The file will be extracted to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe
A shortcut for future use will also be created on your desktop and the Intro Frame of HijackThis will open.

Click Do a system scan and save a log file.

Then, post the log in the HJT forum. Please wait patiently for someone to get to your log, since the members of the HJT team have many logs waiting for a reply before yours.
