    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Yes 27.exe is indeed a backdoor trojan.

    If you do a Google search for 27.exe you will find loads of info for it.

    Let Hijackthis fix it.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Probably a good idea to print them out.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    You can always restore any entries that you get rid off with Hijack this they will be in the Hijack this folder on your computer.

    I would let Hijack this fix this O23 - Service: .NET Connection Service - Unknown - C:\WINDOWS\svchost.exe (file missing)


    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =

    You can delete anything with file missing.

    Also I would let Hijackthis fix all the Google toolbar entries you can always reinstall the google toolbar if you wish.

    Also download Firefox and don`t use IE again except for Windows updates.

    You can get Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

    If I`ve missed anything I`m sure RBS will put you straight.

    Regards Howard :grinthumb

    Your HJT-file looks clean after Howard's advice.
    I am not sure about that google-bar, the version-numbers don't seem right to me. But then, I NEVER EVER install ANY searchbars whatsoever, they are only a pain in the proverbial. My advise: uninstall it.

    To get your (vital) svchost.exe back, run SFC.EXE after you have read this MS-article:

    Yes, you need svchost.exe
    That MS-article was only to show you what it does and how. The same procedure works for XP as well, and is faster than running a repair.
