Windows Process Manager 32 bit

Recommended Posts

I seem to have the Windows Process Manager virus that I have seen a lot of people have here. I've included the first log files I should need to get started, any help removing this virus would be much appreciated.

The folders I have found that appear to be infected are:

C:\Users\Bilbo Swaggins\AppData\Local\scmzrth

C:\Users\Bilbo Swaggins\AppData\Local\ushlvam

C:\Users\Bilbo Swaggins\AppData\Local\wibunvh

I have identified a bad SmartService infection.

You will need access to a spare PC and a USB flash drive that has not been in contact with the sick PC...
Let me know if you have this accessible.

I need to know first if you can enable the Recovery Environment.
It will be needed to remove this infection.

Open FRST on the compromised computer:

copy/paste the following inside the text area of FRST. Once done, click on the Fix button. A file called fixlog.txt should appear on your desktop. Attach it in your next reply.

CMD: bcdedit.exe /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes
CMD: bcdedit.exe /set {default} recoveryenabled yes


On completion, a message will come up saying that the fix has been completed and it'll open a log in Notepad
Copy and paste its content in your next reply.

Wait for further instructions.

Read all the instructions before proceeding.
Take your time and all should be well.

Preparing the USB Flash Drive

Boot up your spare PC:

Do not plug Flash Drive into sick PC until booted to Recovery Environment.

Please download the attached Fixlist.txt file to  the same folder where the Farbar tool is running from.
