I was recently sucked into downloading a trojan from trying to update something on my computer. I was infected with what I found out to be the spylock trojan. It displayed a "warning" on my taskbar wanting me to download their software. I ran my spysweeper as soon as this happened, and deleted the trojan it found but that didn't come close to doing anything. The alert still appeared and my computer was running slower than ever with unusual popups. I did some researching and was able to get rid of the alert with rogue remover that I downloaded. While discussing the problem with a friend he had me check my processes. I found that a dllhost.exe was running 99 .. and listening to him i ended it.. and it was like a miracle, my computer was back to normal minus the popups. I then restarted my computer hoping all was well.. wrong. I had to end the dllhost.exe again to even get my computer to start up. I am starting to think it is not legit. I have even seen two running at the same time... one from the SYSTEM and one from my username. I have tried several scans and different things, nothing seems to help. Any ideas.. please?Moved from the XP Forum. ~acklan~
