  1. Hi This is my first post here and I'll try to follow the guidelines. I have a problem with a process names svchst.exe using all my CPU. Several instances can occur. If i kill the process it will respawn after a while. The description is Windows Spyware Service. Checking with Process Explorer the svchst.exe process parent is a cmd.exe which is unsigned. The same cmd.exe is also parent to a conhost.exe, also unsigned. I cant see the filepath to any of the files. Checking the properties->TCP/IP tab on svchst.exe it shows there is a connection: TCP MYIP:52361
  2. As I was looking through my Task Manager, I noticed something odd. There were two conhost.exe running. One of them didn't have a file location, description, or even a user name (well, SYSTEM, but not really). Showing all processes made it decide that it had a description. It was also using more memory. The one that was selected didn't reveal a location. Look at the first and second image ("Windows5", "Windows10"). TaskMan (not Task Manager) revealed that the one using less memory was in System32. The other one was in my user folder ("Windows11"), but when I looked, there was nothing new.
  3. This computer has proven to be very difficult to clean. Now after throwing a bunch of tools at it, it seems to scan clean. However, there are processes being spawned that make me nervous. As it is running, there are multiple conhost.exe, cmd.exe and reg.exe processes spawned. if I let it run long enough, they take 100% processor and the system becomes unuseable. I wrote a looping batch file to taskkill the reg.exe task and that makes it possible to do some diagnostics. Please help! I have run the following tools: rkill adwcleaner Malwarebytes Rootkit Scanner Malwarebytes Norton Power Er
  4. Hi, I don't know the exact date but I noticed that my PC began to become really slow. So I started to search what was wrong and I found that I have multiple chrome.exe*32 running. This varies from 6 - 10 at the same time! I Also saw that i have multiple conhost.exe running (I don't know if this also is bad). I already tried to remove it with following tools: malwarebytes, hitmanpro, roguekiller, microsoft security essentials, panda cloud cleaner, panda free antivirus, ESET poweliks Cleaner and EMISOFT emergency kit but none of these removed it My physical memory is also really high (Somet
  5. Im using Windows 7 64 bit Recently couple of weeks ago i was having problems with my Internet, it was working too slow in my computer but on the other computer the internet speed was fine. From a friends advice i installed Malwarebytes.and what i saw was that too many websites were trying to run in the background with sppsvc.exe.. Malwarebytes was continuously blocking these malicious russian websites. After a week these websites started to execute from conhost.exe also.Until now Malwarebytes is blocking the websites and sometimes i just do End Process from Task Manager to kill these process
