  1. Good morning, I am getting a message every 15 minutos from AVAST. This message tells that AVAST blocked the connection to URL called by the process C:\windows\system32\svchost.exe I analyzed my computer using several softwares such as MBAM, Adwcleaner, TDSSKILLER or HitmanPro and they haven't find any issue. Could you help me with this topic? Thanks in advance
  2. Hey guys, I was wondering if it's normal to have upwards of 40+ svchosts in windows 10 in the Details tab in Task Manager. It could be my windows 10 privacy tool O&O ShutUp is i think what it's called, though i'm not sure. Could this be something malicious? I've done a scan with Mbam and nothing came up, just wondering. I don't think i've had any slowdowns thus far. 30 sec video attached Thanks! Action 2-26-2020 6-32-06 PM.mp4
  3. Hi. A few minutes ago I got a notification that malwarebytes had blocked svchost.exe trying to access a foreign website. My guess is that's not supposed to happen. This is the first time I have gotten that notification. I have tried a threat scan but it is not detecting svchost.exe as malware of a trojan or anything the like. I have included the .txt of the report. Thanks in advance malwareb.txt
  4. Hello Everyone. I'm hacked with multiple hacking ways. A Malware infected to my Laptop with both svchost.exe and explorer.exe infection. I have deleted this for tenth times but its still downloading or creating itself. It was a hack tool for Point Blank (Its a online fps game). I downloaded it from www.sepok-cit.com . This site has too many good reviews and i believed them. Already I Tried a few ways to delte this sh*t from my computer but none of them worked. I TRIED: 1) Deleting its files (hidden files named as spoolsvc.exe , svchost.exe and explorer.exe) 2) Deleting it v
  5. I recently had gotten a lot of malware onto my PC. I cleared most of it using Malwarebytes, Hitman and other antivirus software. I however, still have some issues. svchost.exe now consumes more than 50% of my CPU usage and I get these notifications from Malwarebytes that I have attached to this post. I have heard that information from my PC could be getting leaked/stolen. Help would be much appreciated! Thank you.
  6. Hi sorry if this is the wrong spot to post. My question is svchost located in syswow64 a virus. Because everything I'm seeing is telling me it's a virus. Bitdefender and Malwarebytes didn't detect anything. So to be safe I did a factory reset on my hard drive and it is still there. Is this a legitimate file. I have a 64 bit operating system.
  7. Hey guys, I need help removing what I think is an SvcHost virus. I recently started having adware tabs pop up on my PC and then after searching for solutions found that whenever I opened a Malwarebytes (or similar website) page, my browser would immediately crash. This happens in Chrome, IE, and Tor. I found this thread which seems to be a very similar virus and after reading a few others, I downloaded MalwareBytes, Rkill, adwcleaner, FRST64, tdsskiller, and aswMBR. (I'm typing this on my other PC btw. Downloaded the files on it and emailed them in a .RAR to my desktop.) This lead to

  10. Hello all, I have been reading through the forum and following the advice of the forum moderators I have decided to create my own topic. Earlier today I upgraded the free version of Malwarebytes to the 14-day premium version. Since the download has been completed, I have been getting non-stop warnings for websites blocked that are being detected as malicious. The ports are constantly changing, but the common theme is that they all come from the same IP address (, are all outbound, and originate from svchost.exe I have downloaded and ran the programs listed here htt
  11. Hello i have svchost on system32 and i know this shouldnt be like that. My cpu going high all the time. (And my ping is always high, i dont know if it has to do with it) I wanted to ask how can u remove the svchost because it might be a little virus.. Thank you,
  12. A few days ago Malawarebytes Premium began blocking this outbound connection (see .png): Domain: drivethelife.com IP Address: Port: 50817 Type: Outbound File: C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe I checked processes running and found four files with this file name (see .png). Any suggestions on how to remove the correct file and get rid of this malware?
  13. Sometimes your program shows me the notification a connection is was blocked by it. The program spams the notification. If It starts, It would not stop for a period of some minutes. I have tried to look at your log files and detect the process what does this. Unfortunately, the program doesn't report process's Id, only the Process's file, which is, in my case, svchost.exe Please help me remove this spyware (I pretty sure it is a spyware). Thanks in Advance, Mizaro
  14. After having stupidly installed a bundle programs full of malware and adware, I think all that is left are these websites that keep getting blocked by malwarebytes.. The"website blocked" report identifies them as outbound connections, file: C:\\Windows\System32\svchost.exe Could you advise on getting rid of them? Thanks, a
  15. I have been getting svchost.exe being blocked by MB for about a week or so, was on vacation so did not have time to deal with until now. Attached are the files from the scans as per the instructions. Please advise, my last go around in the forums nobody responded.

  16. Malwarebytes keeps popping that a website is blocked: SVCHOST.EXE port 68 to "websiteData" : { "ip" : "", "isInbound" : false, "port" : 68, "processPath" : "C:\\Windows\\System32\\svchost.exe", "url" : "" }
  17. I think MBAM just got me a false positive result.After a threat scan it found that the registry \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run|Windows Update with data on C:\Users\wcwra\AppData\Local\Microsoft Windows|svchost.exe is a backdoor.bot,I went to the folder and it was empty,just a svchost.exe.config. backdoor.txt
  18. I keep receiving a popup from MB that tells me that svchost.exe is being blocked trying to connect to a website. It lists the IP address as Attached is one of many that have been blocked, all from the same IP and port. I have read a couple of forum posts, but each seem to be specific to their issue, so i started a new topic. I am currently running the MB rootkit scan to see if there are any results. I have also downloaded AdwCleaner to my desktop, but I have not run the setup yet. Please advise... Protection Event.txt
  19. Hi, I downloaded a mallicous file which installed several things on my computer in Russian language. There was a 'hijack' file, 'Chromium', 'Smart application controller' and some other malware which I luckily could remove (think so) with malwarebytes. Google Chrome in particular was kind of hacked and still has some issues while opening, like russian pop-ups coming on screen. I think Malwarebytes has already removed the greatest part, but I still find some random russian files or links on my computer which weren't detected by Malware nor Bullguard (my antivirus). Also all my Word/Ex
  20. Hello, new to the site and the program. Currently running on a trial version, though really pleased by the program thus far. Anyway, today just past I noticed Malwarebytes was informing me about an ip address getting blocked making both inbound & outbound connections. I checked the logs, it had been doing so since 12:00 am, so far about 50 times, maybe more. at times when I noticed, I tried turning off my browser, and all programs that communicate with the internet, but they continued, so I unplugged my ethernet cable, which stopped it. When I plugged it back in about, it started agai
  21. I keep having a little box in the corner of my screen popping up and telling me that svchost.exe is being blocked by Malwarebytes. Mainly the website is found under the same IP, but the port is always different. This pop-up occurs very frequently, and typically in quick succession. I would really appreciate any help I could get in removing the cause of this problem. Thanks!
  22. Hi Attached pop-up occuring constantly. IP' is not always the same. Is there something wrong with svchost.exe or ...?
  23. I recently installed Malwarebytes after some suspicions due to slow computer running speed in order to run a scan (which turned up 2 entries), and activated a trial for the enhanced protection services. A few days later, I began to receive repeated notifications that a malicious website was blocked, trying to access Skype and svchost. I promptly closed Skype and disconnected my computer from the internet for a bit as I deleted my stored passwords and cache and ran a scan, which turned up nothing. As of reconnecting my computer to the internet after closing Skype, I have not received any more n
  24. Hi, I got slammed yesterday with a mega-malware/virus. It put a bunch of stuff on my computer and hijacked all my browsers. I have been cleaning for a while but have several things still on the computer. There is a service ping.exe that is in the task manager - it seems to play audio advertisement. Kill it it comes back. I installed Malwarebytes and it is now constantly popping up that it blocked various malicious websites. I followed these steps: 1. Ran Adwcleaner a couple times. 2. Ran Malwarebyes 3 times - got to zero items 3. Ran HitmanPro 3 times
  25. Hello, I run Windows 7 on my computer, Kaspersky Internet Security and Malwarebytes Pro. Everything updated, at least that's what I think. Every now and then I keep receiving blocked attacks notification from my Malwarebytes, like inbound on Port 26388 and some random IP address. I think there are other ports not just that one. What is strange is that in the past 2 weeks, it happened 2 times that my Desktop icons rearranged in such a way as if my desktop resolution would be smaller by 30%, like icons from right side went somewhere in the middle~ All my scans did show as clean, but I
