  1. 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. 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 p
  3. I've been getting Malicious Website outbound message via Malwarebytes. It stops them, but cannot remove the problem. Have updated MB and Norton Internet Security - they acknowledge an issue, but can't resolve it. Any ideas?
  4. Okay so I have been trying to get rid of this NASTY guy with NO luck. This is crazy. I reinstalleed WINDOWS have downloaded several different checkers (AVast, Bitdefender, Malwarebytes). Once I install them they find it and delete them, but then find out later it renamed itself to an identical Windows file and camouflaged itself I guess. What the hell do I do? Now it looks like my other laptop could have something too....could this booger have 'jumped' to my other laptop? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! derek
  5. 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
  6. 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!

  7. I have been getting constant Malwarebytes Anti-Malware pop-ups for last 12 hours about "Process: C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\dllhost.exe" I have tried to run scan from Malwarebytes, but it is not identifying any problems.
  8. My computer is showing signs of infection, again. Saturday evening, the Malwarebytes warning screen started popping up, repeatedly. It stopped popping up, yet the computer has slowed down and is not functioning properly. I've run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and AVG, and neither indicated a problem.

  10. Hello TwinHeadedEagle or other experts kind enough to help. After reading some other posts, downloading the needed programs I am ready (and grateful) for any support you are willing to offer. A couple of highlights: * I often struggle with laptop issues * I could not download the requested programs and had to download from another computer then place in a folder on the infected computer (I did this in safe mode) Thank you in advanced, Spinn
  11. I keep getting notifications of a malicious website blocked. Domain: e9967a.com IP Port: 62338 Outbound Process: C:\Widoes\SysWOW64\dllhost.exe sometimes the IP changes and sometimes the domain doesn't show up. I get the notification several times per minute. I've run scans on both Avast and Malwarebytes several times even with the rootkit scan but nothing comes up. What should I do?
  12. I have recently ran a Malware scan and I am continuously receiving a notification that a website is being blocked. I have also read some of the other threads regarding the sysWOW64. all help is appreciated.
  13. Have had issues with high CPU and memory usage, multiple dllhost.exe files, and in general some weird stuff. Installed and ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, continue to get "Malicious Website Blocked", different domain names, different IP, different ports, always "Outbound", and process is always C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dllhost.exe Ran FRST and attached FRST.txt and Addition.txt. Also attached FixLog.txt Ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and attached scan log entitled ScanLog.txt. Ran AdwCleaner, and attached log entitled AdwCleaner[s0].txt Still getting "Malicious Website Blocked" notices every f
  14. Hello, my name is Dax. Feel free to refer to me by my user name or my real name or any nicknames you coin for me. Recently my computer has been running very slowly so I took a look at task manager to see what was slowing it down. What I first saw was three or four files named "dllhost.exe *32" with a description of "com surrogate". I got suspicious of it and looked around for information on the internet. From what I read, it seems I have a virus. Looking into a lot of the high running files, one of which being the dllhost.exe *32, I noticed they all fell into one file location: C:\Windows\SysW
  15. I have been reading the other posts about computers being slowed to a stop by malware in SysWOW64 and I need similar assistance now. Is the name SYSwow64 or SVSwow64? My computer Win7 64bit started slowing two days ago. CPU was being hijacked by processes that just kept taking more memory. Webroot gave no warnings and a very slow Webroot scan found nothing. Ran Norton Power Eraser scan that found nothing. A friend suggested Malwarebytes. First time it ran, it blocked many SysWOW64 malicious websites and quarantined some objects. System was running better until restarted this morning.
  16. I kept getting an alert that an attack was blocked. Some quick websearching led me here. I don't see a self help guide for removal of this malware in the other forum. Is this something that I needed to be guided through like the so many others I see you have helped? Thanks Sandy
  17. Recently, Avast! Anti-virus software has been giving me daily threat detections coming from C:\Windows\SysWOW64. Both Malwarebytes and Avast! do not detect any infected files on my system, but from my own research, I know that SysWOW64 is malware. It also looks to be a little tricky to get rid of it, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Best regards FRST.txt Addition.txt
  18. Hi, I need some help removing Ad by Notification which I think installed when I somehow got Wajam on my machine. Malwarebytes says it quarantined and removed Wajam and I tried uninstalling it as well, but I think it's still hiding. I ran adwcleaner after that and it removed a number of more files. Now all it finds is a registry file that keeps coming back and which points to a SySWow64 folder. It's completely hijacking my browsers with pop-ups, -unders, or ads in new windows whenever i touch any white space or even click on the scroll bar of my browsers. Ugh. Also, I had Azureus on my ma
  19. 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 h
  20. I am posting my logs here, hopefully, someone can help me with removing this malware. Thanks. c:\windows\syswow64\dllhost.exe Addition.txt FRST.txt
  21. 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 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. 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 verificati
  23. I have a virus of some kind on my computer. I'm getting popups stating that malicious websites are being blocked. It says the process is C:\windows\syswow64\dllhost.exe I have read through some of this forum. I tried to download the Farbar software but it says my security settings won't allow me too. Thanks for any help.
  24. Thank you in advance for being so kind as to help out with this pesky problem. I can't seem to remove sysWOW64 with Malwarebytes I have tried UnHackMe, Comodo Antivirus, Prevx 3.0, RoguKillerX64, and tdsskiller to no avail. Please help! Attached are the FRST.txt and Addition.txt from Farbar Recovery Tool. FRST.txt Addition.txt
  25. 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.
