Last night my computer started to play random sounds, they didn't stay, so I ignored them. Then after new years, at about 1am EST -5gmt  my monitor randomly went black, and went to the bios while I was playing a game. It started up all fine, and but i noticed those in the picture.

 

I have windows 7 (64-bit) ultimate

I'm having the same problems. Random ads and music playing, svchost taking up TONS of memory. My anti virus cannot locate any threats. After about an hour or two my computer forcefully restarts. If I kill the process manually it will restart my PC. My friend told me to use rkill.exe. It frees up the memory by killing the process without triggering the force restart but after about 20 mins I have to run it again and again and again. Rkill also makes a log.

I've tried countless things from TDSkiller, malwarebytes, comodo, comobofix... etc. Here's a picture of some of them. Although I just downloaded rkiller, should I try it?

No one should be using ComboFix unless specifically instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. When issues arise with new malware infections or other security tools conflicting with ComboFix, experts are aware of them and can advise users what should or should not be done while providing assistance. Those attempting to use ComboFix on their own do not have such information and are at risk when running the tool in an unsupervised environment. Please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

What specific issues are you having that requires using ComboFix?

Compliments of QuietMan7

Since you ran combofix, Please follow the instructions in ==>Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include the link to this topic in your new topic and a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Once you have created the new topic, please reply back here with a link to the new topic.

Most importantly please be patient till you get a reply to your topic. If you receive a reply from the HelpBot, then please follow the instructions outlined in the helpbot's post.

My new topic

I used combofix, because I found other posts throughout the web about people with this problem and they said to use it, it was way before I found this website.

DarkTesla, please continue with your issue in the topic you started here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/519289/ads-playing-and-a-memory-hogging-svchost-process/

 

stevler, you posted the Combofix log here in Malware Removal Logs, which is the only forum CF is allowed in http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/519302/random/?p=3247947

 

Because that log has been posted this topic is closed.
