Hi all, I have this problem driving me mad now. In my processes are the following which I know are virus/trojan/malware: SVCH0ST.exe (i.e. with a zero and not the letter!) svhost32.exe Weirdly these items show up on the notepad (i.e. saved log) of Hijackthis but they dont appear on the actual tool screen, i mean the page where you can tick the box to fix them. So i cant fix them! I know this sounds obsurd but its true! Also everytime i reboot, Counterspy detects that a program (SVHOST32.exe) is trying to add itself to start up, i delete it but it still pops up evrytime I reboot. there is a svhost32.exe file hiding in a microsoft file in my program files, even deleting this after killing the schost32.exe process only means it comes back again when i re-boot! I cannot also find either of the above on Autoruns. My feeling is that these files are hiding behind another process / file that is respawing them when I reboot, it is that, i reckon, that i need to find and kill so they never come back!! Any ideas?? I have followed the prelim instructions and used Smitfraud as well but still no luck! Please help if poss! Cheers!
