My husband told me tonight that he thought he may have gotten a virus on our computer. I went into task mgr and there was a svchost.exe running at 98% cpu. I killed the process and immediately got the NT Authority error that my pc was shutting down in 59secs due to an error with the DCOM Server Process Launcher. I ran cmd shutdown -a, and killed the shutdown process. I went back into task mgr and found a process I am unfamiliar with called monnid32.exe running, I killed the process. I searched my hard drive for this file, the only place I could find it was under C:\Windows\pss I deleted the file and ran msconfig and unchecked the file for startup. When I rebooted my pc the file had returned as well as the startup. When I run my antivirus program, Avira, it stops at 65% and tells me it has finished the scan with no detections. Does anyone know of a removal tool or have suggestions for manual removal? Thanks for any and all help.
