All signs point to me having svchost on my computer (in fact, I've even seen the name of it on error messages before, but until today,I thought nothing of it)  so I came here for the guide and followed it pretty closely. However, I was stymied pretty much immediately, as any time I tried to open the MBAM rootkit detector, or rkill (even after trying to rename them) I was met with the same "The requested resource is in use" error, even when booting in start mode. Is there anything I can do?

Thanks in advance!

Try changing your language to Italian, and your region. It will do a soft reset, stumble thru the install, and run, then change back to En

I'm going to try that Hacked! I usually boot off established connections by disabling wan, that way I can keep an eye on my network still on my router admin page. I have learned to make sure Mobil phones are off too. My computer has been accessed via Wi-Fi, hotspots, and Bluetooth. If that doesn't work I pull the main plug and give it some time. I then take back admin rights with cmd "net user administrator /active:yes". Maybe finagle some security settings or use task scheduler to get back full access (often admin will have restrictions too). I make sure I have a plan for when I do get back on the internet e.g.. where and what I'm downloading, I'll send myself the links if possible. Never know long the coast will be clear. Oh and safe mode with networking, but now with win 10 that's another task too. Good luck!

I posted a couple below you-major hacking issues-but when I press control alt delete on my computer to see what's running, there's always like 20 places that say "svchost.exe" and a lot of times they are run by SYSTEM and I don't have "permission" to access them. I have guest mode off and have a firewall-does that mean that we are being the "host" for someone remotely connected to us? Sorry that wasn't helpful-I obviously know less than you- but I had someone look at it before and he said it's a "normal win 10 process". Are we talking about the same thing?
