I have no idea what this is, but just wanted to let people know. My Norton security says
Portscan
Source address 192.168.1.1
UDP, Port 53
matches signature of known attack and blocked it.


I am kind of slow when it comes to computers and I do not even know what a port is, but here it is.


I have scanned with everything in the world and have given up on why my computer shuts itself off. I do not have any infections that anyone can find, not even the computer fix it shop. It still says windows \system32\services.exe. and another one is windows\system32\mrt.exe. After these try to access the internet the computer goes off. Weird!

Anyway I just wanted to mention the virus THANKS

Just wanted to add this sytem32\services.exe has two different PID addresses. One is 656 which is on Norton all the time and the other is 660. I didn't know if that was strange or what. They are always targeting different things on my computer too
PID 2508
2484 and
1060.

When it shuts down do you get any error messages? Full message, please
Does it turn itself back on or do you restart it?
Can you run an mbam scan?


The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note:
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

I have used MBAM, Superantispyware, a-squared, and I have Norton security 2009. There are no messages when the computer shuts itself off. It just does it and I have to turn it back on with the restart button. Out of the antispyware programs the only thing I have found is a-squared said there was some supspicious files, but it did not say what they were. Norton is the only one that detects this windows\system32\services.exe and says that it is trying to access the internet. If there is nothing wrong wonder why it does this. My computer acts this way off and on. Some days it shuts itself off once or twice and sometimes it shuts itself off to the point I can't look at anything for three minutes and there it goes. I don't do much on this computer and it keeps messing with me.

Is this a laptop or a desktop?
The way you describe what is happening, it sounds like it is overheating

It is my desktop. I do hear it running hard sometimes, even in the night when it should be asleep.
How could I check to see if this is the problem? What could I do about it if it is?

Start by taking the side off of the case
Turn the computer on, and check to make sure that all of the fans are turning. Including the one in the power supply that you see in the back
Look at heatsink and see if the fins are clogged
Here's a pictorial on how to do this:
