How can I remove Svchost.exe*32 virus

February 7, 2011 at 17:28:17
Specs: Windows Vista, 3

Okay so first let me say that this is not scvhost.exe virus. I did not write this wrong. It is svchost.exe*32 virus. It doesn't show up in a mcafee scan, and the location of the file is
C:\Users\rako\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\User Account Control. It doesn't show up, and in properties it is hidden. It only shows on start up, and the run button to install the file doesn't do
anything. When I cancel it if I alt+tab it shows a .exe picture that I can't click on. It doesn't seem to be harming my computer, and it is in the processes, when I end it the picture when I alt+tab is
gone, but pops up when I restart my PC. How do I remove this.

Hi,

Please scan with Malwarebytes and post a log: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebyt...

svchost.exe is found in the Windows\System32 folder. If it's anywhere other than that, it's most likely a virus.

You'll also want to make sure all files/folders aren't hidden. You can do this by going to Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Show hidden files or folders, make sure "Show hidden files and folders" is checked, then click "Apply", and "Ok".
