Hello two days ago i installed one game from torrent file which wasn't what i expected.When i tried to install it a cmd window opened and after some commands run than it closed opening about 4-5 tabs on firefox .Of course no game was installed and i could not delete the file .I finally used revo uninstaller which hardly delete the file and the program installed .Today i opened task manager and decided to check manually the services running on my laptop by checking them on google .My conclusion is that i found two services that they should not be running but when i choose to disable them a message pop ups which says "access denied" (i am logged in as an admin)

The two services running on my laptop are:

1) Stisvc


i suppose that there are other services running too which should not.Also i think that some services which are disabled should not even be there ...is there a way to remove them

Can someone help me checking my services running on my computer ?



PS:Running windows 7-64bit on an old laptop toshiba satellite a300d

From the web:

stisvc.exe is an executable which is installed by Windows together with digital cameras, scanners or another graphical input devices.

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 FRST which will create two logs.

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...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.


DO NOT bump your new topic. Wait for a response from one of the Team Members.
