    Hi,

    I'm currently infected with svshosti and svchosti executables. I can't turn off my computer without end svshosti process.
    What I need to do to remove this virus?

    Thanks,
    P.

    Hi!

    Go to https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=12516, and download Hijack This.

    Unzip to a folder other than your Desktop or the Temp folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.

    Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    Go to this page, it has the solution.
    www.trendmicro.com
    Search for svshosti.
    It is a trojan that steels your bank account and password, so be careful.
