I have recently downloaded a virus by mistake, i have done this before and i am always able to remove it within the hour. This virus blocks me from deleting any of its files saying i need permission from (the account i am signed in to and am added to the permissions for everything) to delete this file. Blocks me from opening any anti malware software adding giving me the statement "the requested resource is in use", it blocks me from factory resetting my pc. Certain anti virus software such as roguekiller and exterminate it can properly identify the virus but are unable to remove it though it constantly tells me that it has. Some examples of these files include DataUp, SVCVMX and winvmx client. Ive been working on this for four days now and still have no idea how to remove it.



Thanks in advance

How to remove SVCVMX.EXE?

It may not be easy!
Be careful!
Make a full backup of your PC before starting.

Removal guide for SVCVMX.EXE:

  1. Uninstall SVCVMX.EXE using Windows uninstallation applet (use Add/Remove Programs or Uninstall Program or Apps & features).
  2. Open Task Manager to kill all "SVCVMX.EXE" related processes.
  3. Use Windows search to find and remove "SVCVMX.EXE" files and folders.
  4. Run services.msc to disable a "SVCVMX.EXE" Windows service.
  5. Execute taskschd.msc to get rid of "SVCVMX.EXE" scheduled tasks.
  6. Open regedit.exe and delete SVCVMX.EXE registry keys and values.
  7. Check your shortcuts on your desktop and in the Start menu for SVCVMX.EXE presence. Fix infected shortcuts.
  8. Remove a virus from Google Chrome.
  9. Remove a virus from Internet Explorer.
  10. Remove a virus from Mozilla Firefox.
  11. Clean your Recycle bin and temporary files.


My only issue with this is that i have uninstalled all applications that could possible be connected to SVCVMX, yet when i enter task manager and hit end task on it, it does simply nothing, doesn't deny me access, it just does nothing. It denies me access when i try to delete any of these virus files it either tells me that its open in another program or i need administrator permission despite me being the  administrator, also does the same thing after setting myself with full control of the file. When i try to delete the keys it gives me "error deleting key".

Hi, as that reply was a copy/paste of another's work , see here.


Go to that link and run Hitman and see how it is.
