Posted 30 April 2007 - 11:30 PM

Ok...this first hit my friend's computer...we live together and are on the same network though. Apparently, before he told me his was having problems, I got it on mine too - probably when we were sharing some file.

What this seems to be doing is starting the svshost.exe process over and over again - the result is the process starts, then stops a moment or two later. It causes the hourglass to blink nonstop on both our computers, and makes them run slowly because they're constantly working (though it's more noticible on his. I would assume it's because I have more RAM).

We both have Windows XP fully updated - his is Home and mine is Pro, however. I've tried housecall, avg, mcafee (including stinger), spybot, and adaware...all to no avail. I also tried google. I found a few references to svshost.exe, but nothing quite like what our computers are doing and none of the recommended fixes so far have worked.

Here's the hijack this log from my computer. Hopefully the same principles will apply to removing it from both of ours. I tried simply deleting the file svshost.exe and (as I kinda suspected would happen) it just appears again a moment later. I'm not sure where the file is that's creating it. Help?

Hi -

You have backdoor bots on your system. Do NOT do any transactions over the Internet until we have finished. Change your passwords at sensitive web sites right away!
You will need to print these directions because you will be working in Safe Mode without an Internet connection.

• Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.
- Reboot into SAFE MODE
(To get into the Windows XP Safe Mode, restart your computer and, just before Windows starts to load, tap the F8 key a few times. Choose Safe Mode from the menu that will appear and press Enter.)
- Choose your usual account.
  • In Safe Mode, right-click the SDFix.zip folder and choose Extract All,
  • Open the extracted folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
  • Type Y to begin the script.
  • It will remove the Trojan Services then make some repairs to the registry and prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • Your system will take longer that normal to restart as the fixtool will be running and removing files.
  • When the desktop loads the Fixtool will complete the removal and display Finished, then press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
  • Finally open the SDFix folder on your desktop and copy and paste the contents of the results file Report.txt back in your next reply along with a new HijackThis log

Take only memories, leave nothing but footprints.

Hi -

We still have more work to do. Those files returned.

• First, you have HijackThis running from a Temp folder which means that, when you clean out your Temp folders, the program and the backups it makes will be deleted. Download the current version from here and save it to a convenient location. This is a self-executing file, so just double-click the file and it will install itself in its own folder in Program Files. Use this version from now on.

• Open Notepad and copy and paste the text inside the codebox into Notepad:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"Win Process Updates"=-
"Windows32 Process Host Services"=-

- Save this as fix.reg > choose to save as *all files > and place it on your desktop.
- It should look like this: Posted Image
- Double-click on it and, when you are asked if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click YES/OK.

• Please set your system to show all files.
- Go to Start > open My Computer
- Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
- Select the View tab and, under Hidden files and folders, select Show hidden files and folders
- Uncheck Hide file extensions for known file types
- Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
- Click Apply, then OK

• Reboot into SAFE MODE
To get into the Windows XP Safe Mode, restart your computer and, just before Windows starts to load, tap the F8 key a few times. Choose Safe Mode from the menu that will appear and press Enter.

• Start HijackThis, click System Scan Only and place a checkmark next to the following items:
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Win Process Updates] "E:\WINDOWS\system32\winupdates.exe"
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows32 Process Host Services] "E:\WINDOWS\svshost.exe"

This time i uninstalled spybot first - the registry protection may have been part of the reason the files came back last time. I thought it may have been protecting the bug inadvertently. if it's all clear though, i'll reinstall.

I just noticed TeaTimer in your earlier log before I scrolled down to your latest log and saw your remark.

Good job! :thumbsup: TeaTimer was blocking the removal of the registry keys which is why those two files had returned, although disabling TeaTimer would have been sufficient -just to let you know for future reference. :flowers:

Your log looks clean. You can reinstall Spybot. Don't forget to enable TeaTimer.

• I don't see a softwall firewall component, though. This will greatly help in preventing your system from being infected by malware.
Kerio 2.1.5 is a good FREE software Firewall program.
See, Understanding and Using Firewalls

• Please set your system to hide system files.
- Go to Start and open My Computer
- Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
- Select the View Tab and, under Hidden files and folders, check Do not show hidden files and folders
- Check Hide file extensions for known file types
- Check Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
- Click Apply, then OK.

• If you have not done so, please empty your Recycle Bin.

• Create a new Restore Point:
- Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
- When the utility opens, select "Create a new restore point" and click Next
- Name the restore point - something like "After infection cleaned" or "After cleaning"
- Click Create.

• Delete the old Restore Points:
- Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup. Click Ok.
- Click the "More Options" tab.
- Where it states "System Restore" - click Clean up.
- All of the old Restore Points will be deleted EXCEPT for the one you just created.

Reboot your computer.

• To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

• Install Spywareblaster. SpywareBlaster doesn't scan and clean for so-called spyware but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage. Update it periodically.

• Install IE-SPYAD puts over 20,000 sites in your restricted zone, so you will be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that are not actually innocent at all.

* Avoid illegal sites because that's where most malware is present.
* Don't click on links inside pop-ups. If you should get them, use ALT + F4 to close them.
* Don't click on links in spam messages claiming to offer anti-spyware software because most of these so-called removers ARE spyware.
* Download free software only from sites you know and trust because a lot of free software can bundle other software, including spyware.

• Let your anti-virus and anti-spyware scanners scan frequently and don't forget to update before scanning.

• I suggest you perform an online virus-scan once in a while (Housecall and/or Bitdefender) because what one virus-scanner can't find, another one maybe can.

• Make sure your Windows has the latest updates by going here.

• More information on how to prevent malware can be found at So how did I get infected in the first place? (by Tony Klein) and Malware Prevention: Prevent Re-infection.

Happy surfing again! :huh:
