Yesterday, I noticed my cpu was nearly maxed out constantly and there were several dllhost.exes in my processes. Malwarebytes also displayed a popup every 2 seconds claiming to have blocked something. A friend told me it was Poweliks and had me run ESET Poweliks Cleaner. It removed the issue and the popups stopped, but they have just resumed. Its not as bad as yesterday, but the Poweliks Cleaner doesn't show any results, and neither does Microsoft Security Essentials or Malwarebytes.

 

OS: Windows 7 64bit
Security Programs: Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebytes antimalware,

Superantispyware, and used Poweliks

 

The popup from Malwarebytes says:

Malicious Website Blocked
IP: 95.215.1.57
Port: 64499/64981/64983/65013(Port changes with every popup)
Type: Outbound
Process: C:\Windows\SysWow64\dllhost.exe

--------------------------------------------------------
Domain: 114611url.directdisplayad.com
IP: 66.45.56.109
Port: 64862
Type: Outbound
Process: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe

I had the same issue and couldn't figure it out. 
I used Combofix, and for some reason, it fixed it. It's been running smooth ever since.

Yeah, its a powerful tool, but I don't use it unless one of the guys/gals over here says too. They know what theyre doing a lot better than I do and I trust their judgement.

As I stated above, I just had this issue and that's what fixed it for me. Just a suggestion.

I definitely understand what you're saying, and I wish you good luck

@ ghost778

This issue will require further investigation and a more comprehensive look at your system. Many of the scanning tools we use in this forum are not capable of detecting (repairing/removing) all malware variants so more advanced tools are needed to investigate. Before that can be done you will need to create and post a DDS log for further investigation.

Please follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide starting at Step 6.
  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create two logs. (Note: Windows 8.1 Users will not be able run DDS and create a log)
When you have done that, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs or you're using Windows 8.1, then still start the new topic anyway. Explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them. A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.

After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can close this one.
