Duplicate rogue services keep appearing

Recommended Posts

We have what seemed to be a trickbot version infection.  We found after clean scans that we still have rogue services with names simliar to windows services but adding group of random numbers and letters to the end.  have the PC's offline in safe mode(windows 10) we manually remove the services but just logging off and back in causes them to reappear with another random name. I've attached a screen shot example.  The only symptom is the user is OK  but if they browse the web the browser will crash and it does seem to matter what browser they use.  They mostly use SVCHOST and in the example they are named CaptureService, Connected devices and contact data.  They all have _8bbe397 currently but if removed they get added back with a new random ending.  To add to the difficulty on newer versions of windows like 1809 the services show services.  We found an older Windows 10 version doesn't show anything in services but they are all listed in the registry in hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services

Sorry yes this turned out to be a non issue.  The duplicates we were chasing were legitmate entries.  The computers with the issue had sophos running as well which appeared to conflict. This occured even with malware web protection disabled, uinstalling one or the other resolved the issue.
