About ten days ago my computer started acting funny. My sister was said that the Google links weren't working right. I thought nothing of it until my accounts internet explorer started freezing and puling up a random pages (infrequently). Than about six days ago, my computer threw a hissy fit and went blue screen. I was able to work in safe mode, and could find the virus but it wouldn't let me log in during normal mode. I looked closely at the task manager and did some online research I had the svchost virus. In safe mode I ran tdss killer but it found nothing. Malwarebytes kept on deleting it, but it kept on regenerating itself. I ran tdss killer, malwareanti-malwarebytes, and Norton (admittedly around the third time I had about two of the programs running at the same time).


Finally I tried mawarebytes beta antirootkit, and miracle of miracles no more blue screen. I ran regular malwarebytes and norton to clean up the strays (at this point I did a bad things and let both programs run simultaniously for a while. I got the Svchost with Malwarebytes whie Norton found
 three other viruses, but I cannot find the names on the Norton logs (one was a Hueristic Virus).


 I am still being redirected to other sites and my pages still suddenly freeze one me! I have ran the Mawarebytes rootkit found nothing, I have TDSS killer with all of the initial options checked  nothing, Norton nothing, Malwarebytes nothing. Did I screw something up or do I stil have a sneaky MF on my system?

Please Obi Wan Kenob, you guys are my only help. I am willing to go to the malware logs, if you guys think this could still be the same bad mofo. I have downloaded DDS already, I just don't want to end up wasting anyones time by accident. I have Windows 7 Home Premium and work on a Toshibe laptop.

Hello having had the svchost virus I think we should get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
