Need help with potentially compromised system

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I have been worried about my system being compromised for quite a while. Just strange events happening every now and then. I have run my anti virus software and it has found nothing, i also downloaded the free ESET scanner which found nothing. I have a lot of tasks in my task bar that i am not sure about and would appreciate any help finding out if there is anything wrong with my system.

The main thing that worries me is the amount of SVChost processes i have running, here is a list i printed in the windows terminal. Does anything here look odd?

There is no malware in those logs. Just orphan entries.

  • Download the enclosed file  Fixlist.txt
  • Start FRST (FRST64) with Administrator privileges (FRSTEnglish.exe) (C:\Users\Cal\Downloads\FRSTEnglish.exe)
  • This time around Press the Fix button and wait
  • When finished, a log file (Fixlog.txt) will pop up and saved in the same location the tool was ran from.

Please attach this file in your next reply.
