So, I know that svchost.exe when not in system32 is bad thing, but I don't really know what to do in this situation. This usually pops up when I am just browsing anywhere, and nothing to me is being blocked.  The IP is from Luxembourg?  Another forum told me that it belonged to sokroveno, a Warez site, but I've never been there.


I have run the svchost.exe through VirusTotal, bytehero found "Trojan.Win32.Heur.Gen", nothing else turned up anything.I have the standard Windows Firewall running.

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

Your log is clean.

Malwarebyte is working well, If you are seeing a message each time it blocks an IP, you can disable that action.

To disable the popups
1. Open Malwarebytes
2. Click on the Protection tab
3. Uncheck/untick the last item
"Show tooltip balloon when malicious website is blocked"
4. Click the exit button rather than the X at the top right to close the window.

How is the computer running now?
