Tried solution but taskmgr and svchost not working

  1. Hi

    I am not very technical guy. I have Mccafee installed in my system. The other day when I clicked a link, Mccagee alerted me that it identified and removed a trojan. But i kept getting popups. After running superantispyware, it stopped.

    I found out my taskmgr is not working. I googled and did what I read in this site.

    As I read, I did find the taskmgr in systemroot and when I double clicked it, It worked. After 1st time It did not work.

    I followed the instructions to remove malware/virus. I here attached the 3 logs.

    my svchost is not working after 1st time.

    I installed sysinternals. But I am not that much knowledgeable to find out the wrong one. I attached that file too.

    Please help!

    Not enough information. Can you be more detailed in your description of the problem.

    Where are the logs?

    Several different processes show as svchost.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Dear moderator, Should I post taskmgr problem and svchost problem seperatly?

    As I already mentioned i am not very technical guy. So I don't know what type of problem description I should give. Can you please ask me particularly what your are expecting?

    I forgot to mention that Mccafee is giving 'Buffer overflow blocked' in C:\windows\system32\services.exe whenever i start my PC.

    I attached my logs in my first post. Here I copy the logs here.

    Pasted logs removed, all logs must be attached
    One thread for one problem is all you need
