I have 2 dllhost and 2 csrss processes showing in my taskmanager. When I click on the dllhost, they disappear.(very strange) And when i click on the csrss and right click on "go to service" it will go to the service window but does not show what service it is. i am attaching pics of my taskmngr with the dual file and one pic after i click on dllhostAttached File  taskmngr.PNG   29.76KB   3 downloads
Is this a virus or spyware and if so, how do i get rid of it. thank you for your support!!

Hi, Welcome to BC.

Lets try a few scans.

Please Download Malwarebytes AKA MBAM

Update Malwarebytes via the update tab.
Run a full scan
When the scan finnishes please select Remove Selected and make sure all of the boxs are checked
Please post the results

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. Be sure to post the complete log to
include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

Please Download Tdsskiller

Run TDSSKiller.exe
Click on Change Parameters
Put a check in the box of Detect TDLFS file system
Start scan
When it is finished the utility outputs a list of detected objects with descriptions:
The utility automatically selects an action (Cure or Delete) for malicious objects and asks you what to do with suspicious objects (Skip, by default)
Just stick with the default options and click Continue
If it wants to reboot please allow it to do so and let me know
Click on Report and post the contents of the text file that will open

By default, the utility outputs the log into system disk (it is usually the disk where the operating system is installed, C:\) root folder. The Log will have a name like: TDSSKiller.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.


ESET online scanner

Install it

Click on START, it should download the virus definitions
When scan completes, click on LIST of found threats

Export the list to desktop, copy the contents of the text file in your reply
You may not get a listing if nothing is found
