my antispyware software called microsoft security essentials keeps finding this fakespyro and deleting it though it cant find the source of it so the trojan keeps returning. it is supposedly a severe threat and it will not go away. i keep finding it in my user files and i do not want it to hack my computer.
Also i check cpu usage on my computer and find svchost.exe programs have a very high cpu usage on my computer and i do not know where or how to delete them, the specifics names of these are svcchost.exe(netscvs) and svchost(DcomLaunch)
please help me delete these viruses i have tried deleting them on my own but i do not trust buying an antispyware system that may not even delete these
thank you very much
Ok...first off...the svchost files are services/programs essential to running Windows. If you want a better look at what is going on in there, download Process Explorer from Sysinternals (owned by Microsoft now). You do not want to delete or end these (ask McAfee...their antivirus did and screwed up a lot of computers).
In regards to the actual virus...have you tried scanning in safe mode (reboot and jam on the F8 key until you get the options to boot into Safe Mode)? Also, have you tried other scanners? I would recommend SuperAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes.
Also, have you check the startup items (start, run, msconfig), or use ccleaner, another fine program, to check the startup items. Make sure that it isn't running in there (google those items and see if they are necessary).
Those are just beginning steps to help remove it. If that doesn't work, sometimes you need to remove it manually.
