So it's been a while since i have to deal with this annoying process, it's a miner virus, i don't realize it at first since when i opened up task manager, the process ends itself automatically, i can see like a splitsecond that the cpu usage rises, then drops, and stays low while i open task manager, my performance especially in gaming drops dramatically, i then tried ASC 11, and there's indeed a process called "Host Process for Windows Services" there's 2 of them, eating up each 25% cpu, but now it's only one, today. I tried terminating the process on ProcessHacker, but i feel like something still holds up my cpu, still lagging while gaming. I tried to use Windows Performance Recorder, i tried to track down the services, but it leads to nowhere, i only found either Idle or svchost itself.

Hello,



Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine.

Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable.

Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:

Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

  • Right-click on
    icon and select
    Run as Administrator to start the tool.
    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
  • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
  • When finishes FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please attach it to your reply.
