Strange type of malware/rootking or whatever it is. w10 reinstall dont help

Recommended Posts


Some time ago,  lets say month ago, my computer started to act strange for example CPU fan was always on high RPM, anytime I tried to check what cause high CPU usage when I entered task manager there were cpu usage at 9%-10%. But I had a feeling that something strange is going on. Also i had some strange services running on my PC for example if normal Service name is Print Server I had this service stopped and there was another one "PrintServer_a8xdc6dsa" something like that. Also i found out that some strange firewall rules are being added to my firewall using ports from 50000-59999. I also found that I have a lot of network services running, also some "network accounts?" I was unable fo find those sessions trying with cmd -> Query session ID. I was able to find only my session. Also my computer was redirecting all my network queries to those strange ports for example when I was using internet port 80 i checked with wire shark that its being redirected to 5xxxx port.


I reinstalled Windows and everyting was okay until yesterday. I was checking my CPU usage once again because of computer being slow etc. CPU usage was again on low level but i found in processes that I have a lot of svchost.exe instances running some of them were local, some of them were Network services related. 


Conclusion: I think my computer was hacked and used as a part of botnet? Or kind of bitcoin miner, also in registry under Windows profiles i had some strange keys with chinese letters. I reformatted computer today again and I didn't even connected to internet. I downloaded farbar and here are my results, do You guys see anything suspicious? Also I have to confess that I have 5 hard drives and I reformatted only one of them because I can't aford to lose data from those drives. Also I had a feeling that my svchost.exe from Windows/System32 is corrupted and also other .exe files from this directory - because they were executed with strange commands added such as -NetsvcUser and such staff.


Could someone please look into logs and check for anything suspicious?
