Svchost.exe

9 posts in this topic

My computer has been laging lately. I am running windows xp. I checked the task manager and found that randomely svchost.exe is running and using around 50-90 percent of my cpu. There are 6 svchost.exe programs running. Also my start bar at the bottom turns back to looking like a windows 98 start bar. It starts out blue like normal but then turns to grey like the old style. I have purchased and run regcure software removing 829 problems but this one is still here. I can wait about 5 minutes and run it again and another 100 or so items will appear. I also have ad-aware se with all current updates that I run regularly. When it runs it says that I have 37 running processes and 1622 process modules. I have symantec antivirus running at all times also. My firewall is up and running and I am also running my internet through a router. My windows update trys and trys to work but the site just sits there saying scanning computer. However the automatic updates is always downloading the same 9 files and trying to install on every shutdown. I can not install them by clicking on the icon at the bottom. Here is my current hijack this log after running a full scan with adaware se.

Hi,

 

Why are you having a flash file as an active desktop component? I can imagine this slows down your system a lot.

And another questionable desktop component? Unless you are not aware of this.

Anyway, do next first..

 

* Go to start > control panel > Display properties > Desktop > Customize Desktop... > Web tab

Select everything you find in there (except for "My current home page") and press the delete button on the right.

Hit ok below > apply in previous window.

 

Also, I see you have Viewpoint installed...

Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad". This will change from what we know in 2006 read this article: http://www.clickz.com/news/article.php/3561546

I suggest you remove the program now. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present.


  • Viewpoint
  • Viewpoint Manager
  • Viewpoint Media Player

Reboot afterwards.

 

Concerning your svchost.exe crashing/hogging cpu at startup, this is indeed a problem with the Windows Update Automatic check.

Strangely enough, I've seen this issue in most cases where Symantec/Norton is installed, or the Zonealarm Firewall. Coincidence or... ?

 

Anyway, do next..

 

Follow next instructions: (quoted from Microsoft forum here)

 

1. Click Start->Run, type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the

open box and click OK.

2. Double click the service "Automatic Updates".

3. Click on the Log On tab, please ensure the option "Local System account"

is selected and the option "Allow service to interact with desktop" is

unchecked.

 

4. Check if this service has been enabled on the listed Hardware Profile. If

not, please click the Enable button to enable it.

5. Click on the tab "General "; make sure the "Startup Type" is "Automatic".

Then please click the button "Start" under "Service Status" to start the

service.

6. Repeat the above steps with the other service: Background Intelligent

Transfer Service (BITS)

 

Step 4: Re-register Windows Update components and Clear the corrupted

Windows Update temp folder

 

1. Click on Start and then click Run,

2. In the open field type "REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL" (without quotation marks) and

press Enter.

3. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in WUAPI.DLL succeeded" message,

click OK.

4. Please repeat these steps for each of the following commands:

 

REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL

REGSVR32 WUAUENG1.DLL

REGSVR32 ATL.DLL

REGSVR32 WUCLTUI.DLL

REGSVR32 WUPS.DLL

REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL

REGSVR32 WUWEB.DLL

 

After the above steps are finished. Sicne temporary folder of Windows Update

may be corrupted. We can refer to the following steps to rename this folder

that

 

1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following

command in the opened window.

 

net stop WuAuServ

(note, you might need to reboot before the net stop command will work)

 

2. Click Start, Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.

3. In the opened folder, rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to SDold.

4. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following

command in the opened window.

 

net start WuAuServ

 

If above solutions didn't work...

 

Turn off Automatic Updates. To do this, go to your Controlpanel > Security Center > Automatic Updates and disable it there.

(you will still be able to download and install the updates from the Windows Update site)

miekiemoes,

 

Great tips, and I have followed them, to the letter. It fixes for a short time, but this bugger still comes back on me :) .

 

Now the last note is new to me where you turn off your automatic updates. I did that and put it at "Notify Me...". It works, but as soon as I put automatic updates back on, svchost.exe comes back :) . So what would you suggest to actually get rid of the lil' trojan.

 

Iknow I could probably keep my updates on "Notify", but the virus is still there.

Hi,

 

What virus are you talking about? There is no virus here... svchost.exe is no virus but an important file needed for a stable running of Windows.

 

Just leave Automatic Updates off in your case.

edit.. I just see you are not the original topic starter. Please do not post in someone elses thread, because this causes confusion.

You have to start a new Thread with your problem.

I will keep an eye on my cpu useage just to make sure. Does this virus infect anything else? Windows update is up and running once again and as good as new! Thank you very much for your time and help. I owe ya one. All tech support ever says is format the hard drive. This was much less time consuming and alot easier to keep my documents. Thanks again for all your help. If you see any other threatening programs in my log file please let me know.

Hi,

 

Does this virus infect anything else?
Not sure why you are talking about a virus here - this is the same what twidget96 also said. You both are not dealing with a virus. svchost.exe is not a virus.

This is nothing malicious causing this. As I already explained in my first post - I see this problem with svchost frequently when Norton/Symantec is installed and/or Zonealarm. If this is a coincidence or not, I cannot tell. Maybe Norton/Symantec is the virus? :)

The problem with svchost.exe also appears frequently after installing the hotfix package KB916089 from Windows Update..

 

If you see any other threatening programs in my log file please let me know.
That's what I already suggested before - to uninstall Viewpoint and delete some active desktop components :D

There are just some orphaned leftovers in your log which you have to check and fix in HIjackThis, so check and fix next entries:

 

R3 - URLSearchHook: Yahoo! Toolbar - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - (no file)

O21 - SSODL: eitheror - {2016a466-91a2-43c6-97d8-2fd380f065ef} - (no file)

 

No need to post a HijackThislog afterwards - I know above entries will be gone after you fixed them in HijackThis.

 

As a sidenote, I see you are using MySpace.. since you have the MySpace IM installed.

MySpace is not safe and I do not recommend it to anyone. You may also want to read these blogs:

MySpace userprofiles infected

MySpace malware -- for the unpatched

Hacked Ad Seen on MySpace Served Spyware to a Million

MySpace users hit by hacker virus

 

Other reasons why not using MySpace.com:

1. It contains suggestive and pornographic images

2. It allows for the easy posting of way too much personal information

3. It is a context for dating and personal ads

4. It can be and has been used to exploit children and teenagers.

So if you want to keep your system clean, do not use MySpace

 

And, just one thing to perform.. Your version of Java is outdated and needs to be updated to take advantage of fixes that have eliminated security vulnerabilities.

Updating Java:

  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u1.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u1".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
    - Examples of older versions in Add or Remove Programs:
    • Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2
    • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0
    • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6

    [*]Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.

    [*]Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.

    [*]Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.

    [*]Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6-windows-i586.exe to install the newest version.
