I have come across malware or a virus related to the winsecserv.exe file. I believe it is a trojan however, no matter what I do it always comes back. Symantec isn't detecting it and the defs are current. I've booted into safe mode and hacked it out of the registry and deleted all of the files I can find associated with it but it always comes back. I cannot find any info on the net related to this wee beastie. Anyone heard of this?
