1. ## SysWow64: Am I infected?

Hi guys, i was running a FIFA download when a file transfer window popped up followed by numerous incessant SysWow64 command prompts. Scanned with Malwarebytes and Kaspersky, both found nothing. Anything to worried about?
2. ## How to remove encrypted rootkit from usb?

Hello, Im new to this forum and I would be extremely grateful if anyone here could give me some advice on how to remove encrypted syswow64, (possibly zero access rootkit), from several usbs that I got that have been infected when they where inserted in windows computers that I got that were attacked by hackers. The hackers installed a system administration server on my network and attacked my computers with some kind of synzcronization worm/virus that synced and even infected offline devices, (that contained Bluetooth and smartcard etc), like Television, digital TV box, dvd, printer and phones. Programs that I detected on my computers that they were using were among others, syswow64, bluetoothshare, various installation hooks, svchost, microsoft synchronization feeds, keyloggers, infrared, remote Control programs, malicious code and code changer programs etc. When I scan the usbs with regular virus Scans like Kaspersky or Norton they all comes out Clean and no names shows up during the scan but when I scan the usbs with microsoft forefront scanner it also comes out as Clean but during the scan all the rootkit names show up though. The names that comes up includes for example syswow64, catroot, system root: nearby devices, hkmmodule installation hook, netframework installation hook, microsoft feeds synchronization, subsystem spooler system, mobilesynch.exe, tablet/pcsynch.exe, rundll.32.exe and many more. I have run the scan on all photos separately that is stored on the usbs and the same rootkit names shows up during the scan on every single photo and also, when I did a test and removed all files from one usb, so that it was empty, all the names still showed up when I scanned it and I could also see that the rootkit, (although I cant see it as it is encrypted), took up 0,8 gb of space on the usb since there was only 7,2 gb left for me to use although the size of the usb is 8 gb so if the usb were really empty there should be 8 gb space left for me to use, not 7.2 gb. What I would like to know is if anyone here knows if theese types of encrypted rootkits is possible to remove at all fro usbs so that I can get my photos, and if so how? Is there any antivirus website where I can upload the photos that can Clean the rootkit completely out of the usb and photos or should I go visit some computer specialist store instead, or is it enough if I just burn the photos over to a dvd and then the rootkit will dissapear byitself, or is there nothing that can be done at all? Anyone that knows the answer to theese questions please feel free to send me messages either in this thread or you can send me private messages to my profile here on this forum aswell if you like. All answers are extremely appreciated

5. ## Do i have a virus or not?

So yesterday as i played with my gamepad both my keyboard and gamepad started to press buttons randomly so i started to search for something suspicious in my task manager and found 2 dllhost.exe processes, one was located at C:/Windows/system32 and one at C:/Windows/SySWOW64....now after some research i found out the SySWOW64 one seems to be a trojan but after asking for help and scanning with recommended software at malwaretips.com they said my pc seems clean but i highly doubt it... Heres some logs i got from scanning with FRST: Addition.txt FRST.txt

Dear all, I read in other posts that other people are also having this problem. I went on and downloaded all recommended software, did all the scans and now you can find the logs attached. I ran a scan today with MB (database v2014.12.08.01) but it didn't find anything, and somehow I can't find the scan log inside the program. I also have HitmanPro, and it detected the file and quarantined it once, but it keeps popping up as malicious website blocked on MB. Attached the logs. Thank you for your time and help!

19. ## Malicious Website Blocked Syswow64\DLLhost.exe

Hello. This is my first time ever asking for help with malware on a forum. Usually Malwarebytes takes care of any problems. I am constantly getting a pop-up from Malwarebytes: Malicious Website Blocked Type: Outbound Process: Syswow64\dllhost.exe I already ran Malwarebytes several times, my antivirus (AVG), Spybot, Emsisoft, CCleaner and five or six other cleaning programs. All couldn't find anything. Yet the warning keeps popping up for the last week or so (not as often in the last few days, but still does). Is it something I should worry about? Thanks so much in advance for your help!

21. ## infected syswow64\dllhost.exe ---- HELP

I think my computer is infected with a backdoor virus. An outgoing link gets getting stopped by my Malwarebytes. It wants to go to random websites like fff5ee.com and ip addresses like 92.215.1.57. It says it originates from windows\syswow64\dllhost.exe. Help. I would like to get rid of these annoying pop-ups. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
22. ## Possible Zeroaccess Infection

I have a possible infection and would appreciate someone looking into this. My computer has very sluggish behavior and seems to take forever to do anything, even when nothing is running. I continually get error messages from Norton on high memory usage by Com Surrogates (Syswow 64) and I also have been getting notices from MalwareBytes on malicious websites being blocked (example attached.) I ran the Farbar recovery scan tool and found the following notation: ==================== Bamital & volsnap Check ================= (There is no automatic fix for files that do not pass verification.) ATTENTION: ====> ZeroAccess. Use DeleteJunctionsIndirectory: C:\Windows\system64 I am attaching the complete files for reference. Does this mean I have a rootkit and if so, how do I remove it? Thanks much in advance for your help. FRST.txt Addition.txt

Thanks for any help.

25. ## High Usage COM Surrogate dllhost.exe

Hi, first of all thanks in advanced for the help you could provide me. I will try to be short but detail. I noticed my laptop Dell Latitude running slow and overheating after a Windows Update and I began to notice pop ups from Norton telling me that COM Surrogate was consuming too much memory. Here began the nightmare. I ran Norton, Viprerescue, Microsoft Scanner, Norton Power eraser, Kaspersky, etc. and all of them no threat found. I contacted Norton support and they performed a remoted session and did something trought de cmd and after all, they told me everything was clear. Great!! But not. The pc was fast as before but many features, programs and shortcuts didn't response to the mouse click. Can't open programs, etc. by the way I am not an IT but I love pc. I was checking under windows/system32 and there is a dllhost.exe file and its properties looks good. But there is another one dllhost.exe under windows/syswow64 and that one looks weird, properties different, permissions and security details looks bad. When the permission under security tab in the prperties of the files are denied works fine but then no response to certainly features and programs but if I change the permission and allow everything those features works but COM Surrogate begin to consume high memory. Also I check the same files on my wife's pc and both dllhost.exe are in those location windows system32 and syswow64 but looks perfect and works perfect. I hope you can understand and appreciate your help and support. Thanks a lot in advanced.
