Infected services.exe and winm.dll

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I've been having problems with my computer lately. AVG pops up constantly with messages of infected services.exe and winm.dll. I've tried to remove it using AVG, but it's immediately replaced by a new one for some reason. I've also tried Malwarebyte, still problems. I also tried reinstalling XP, but that failed... I use an PC with an SATA HDD and that means that Setup needs 3rd party drivers to detect the HDD. The problem is that my floppy drive died, so i can't reinstall xp.

I also tried copying the original services.ex_ from the CD to the system32 folder using a move-on-boot program, but that didn't work either.

The infections are:


C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe Worm/Generic.BAFF

C:\WINDOWS\system32\winm.dll PSW.Banker_c.SF

OS: XP 32 bit
