Hi all,
Been a while since my last post as I have had problems with my PC what with the Sass virus etc. I managed to download a patch and a permanent fix. However, everytime I log on now I get the below coding which just repeats itself. I can minimise it or close it down, but it is really starting to annoy me now. Does anyone have any inclination what it made be and how to remedy it?

C:\WINDOWS\System32\scvhost.exe

Some of the script is as follows:-

Flushed DNS Cache
Trying to connect to "horesaft.alt-bin.com12000"
Connection to "horsaft.alt-bin.com12000" failed!


Many thanks
FTSEBOY :eek:

It looks like you're still infected. You've got scvhost. The Windows one is svchost.

Thanks Oatman for the link. This must be some kind of consprancy as I downloaded the latest McAfee Virus scanner and it never picked it or or removed it. What a con!!! Now I've got to pay $40-00 to get rid of it. What is the best Virus package on the market as I might try and get a refund from McAfee?
Cheers

A lot of peeps still use AVG. http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_dwnl_free.php
Very popular, well respected.
I was using it 'til I copped one from that Hitler geezer. I don't know if the AV failed or I let it in :cheesy: Anyway I decided a change etc. etc and went to AntiVir.(in Paul's post)
Can't see the point in paying up. There are a few good free ones and good firewalls.
At the end of the day it's a matter of where you go on the net.

i had the same problem, but found AntiVir did not remove it; try the following:

Scvhost.worm

Overview
Scvhost.worm spreads over Windows network shares. The worm's main file is called scvhost.exe, trying to mimic the legitimate svchost.exe file is located in %SystemDir%. Note: Do not delete %SystemDir%\svchost.exe.

Note: %SystemDir% is a variable (?). By default, this is C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me), C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP).

Classification

Please follow the instructions below if you would like to remove Scvhost.worm manually. Please notice that you must follow the instructions very carefully and delete everything that is mentioned.
