services.exe infected

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new at this forums and I have a problem, but I don't know how to solve it, so the problem is following:

I got few alerts in last few days when I wanted to open some web pages, so I ran an intelli - scan in Spyware Doctor and it has showed some elevated spywares and I deleted them, all but just one threat... That threat has an medium risk, and has infected SERVICES.EXE (services.exe) program, I didn't want to touch that because I know that services.exe is one of the most important processes in Windows, so what should I do? (baydeaway, the threats name is something like Adware.... and I don't know further...

Please help

There is a current worm that runs from the drivers folder and uses services.exe as its file name and another trojan that uses the same name but from the windows folder .

Only the one in system32 is the correct once to keep .
