Hello.
I have a problem with malware in svchost.exe. The symptom is my cpu usage is up to 51% by unnamed process (in task mgr). Process is connected with svchost.exe which is located in Windows\syswow64.
I have used anti-malware programms such as malwerbytes, adwcleaner, etc, nothing worked.
My operating system is windows 8.1 pro.

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.
