Hi
I have recently installed windows 7 at the direction of Microsoft tech support using an upgrade disk to do a clean install (custom) which has produced some strange processes I see running in task manager. svchost.exe restricted, winint.exe, psi.exe,svchost.exe (bthsvcs), wininit.exe,rundll32.exe,hkcmd.exe? I know they are legitmate, atleast i thought they were.

They are related to svchost.exe and I'm not sure what might be running. Looking for assistance to determine what might be happening.

Info: Dell Inspiron 1525 , Windows 7 home premium, 32 bit, no printer, or external devices, connect via wireless adapter. Using McAfee Security suite.

I changed my security password from WEP to WPA at the direction of my ISP provider and changed my password.

what could be causing these issues?

All of the above are just normal, rather than try to explain it all myself and wear my fingers out typing, check out this article here.

Thank you for the quick reply.

I tried right clicking on a process and then going to services as instucted but nothing is highlighted. Is there something I'm not doing?

Just some bckground info- before I did the clean install of windows 7 I was plagued by a browser redirection issue. So I decided to purchase windows 7 since I would get 6 months of tech support included.

What happens is about 12 to 24 hrs after the installation is complete my system becomes slow, with a considerable amount of cpu space consumed either constantly or it peaks and then drops to almost nothhing.

Is there any concern about my usb wireless mouse connection and rootkits, worms, etc? My Physical Memory value stays constant at 1130 MB.

I know I was hacked prior to my clean install but was unable to determine what malware was deposited in 4 files that were open to sharing, unbeknowst to me.

Is there more descriptive detail I might provide or a scan to detect rootkits?


I ran a scan with the Secunia PSI after I updated my touchpad driver and several alerts were issued about Internet explorer 8.x, Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 6.x -that needed attention,Sun Java JRE 1.6x/6.x, and Microsoft .Net Framework 3.x .
All but the XML Core services were listed as "no further action needed- detected as being patched.

Should I be concerned?
