Lately random named services have appeared on my pc. I know they are not valid and randomly generated because google turns up nothing. The only thing that turned up was a post by someone with the same problem but no solution. This time it is named Dosc2rlegpbo, two days ago it was Mrretesosc. Always the same mo: It has no dependencies and is stopped. Attempting to start it gives "Error 3. The system cannot find the path specified." (path to exe is blank) There are no files on the system with these names. Deleting all registry references gets rid of the problem for a while but then somehow it returns under a new guise. I've ran spybot, adaware, hijackthis, startuplist, rootkitrevealer, ewido- Nothing. (You'll have to take my word for it that i am reasonably proficient at interpreting the results) Can anyonw tell me HOW this thing keeps getting rewritten to the registry?
