Hi i just got infected with a virus that keeps "pressing" random buttons on my keyboard. Whenever I log on to windows, my computer just starts doing random things like tabbing and opening programs and files. i didnt get a good look at the name of the virus but i think its sv****.exe

any help will be greatly appreciated.

1st Update ur untivirus, and download spybot (do a full update)

2nd Go to Control Panel then go to systems (I asume u have XP) under the System Restore tab check "turn off system restore" Do this only if u sure u will not use it. U can turn it back on after. Sometimes turning this off will help in catching a virus when u scan

3rd. Go to safe mod. U can do that by clicking start - run, then type "msconfig" In the Boot.in select /safeboot. & restart pc

4th Do a full virus scan & Spybot scan then restart and let us know

Cheers m8

None of the processes should load up if he boots into safe mode so he should be able to run the scans without getting distracted.

Yep boot into safe mode and run a scan you must have picked up some malware or something, I would think your system restore will allready be effected as this is one of the first places to get hit when a virus gets in, Post the results of the scan if you can, did you open a downloaded file when this all started?.

sounds like the process that looks like the windows svchost.exe but has a slightly different name. scvhost.exe or something. try and kill the process when you logon if it will let you. i also suggest "hijack this" to clear the crap from your registry. also work in safe mode if the whole killing the process thing doesnt work

why the hell would you turn off system restore? because once he has scanned it and deleted it and what happens if he catches another one? well then he can't restore because he turned it of, what a stupid suggestion

disabling system restore isnt a bad thing. good virus scanners and stuff are the best way to remove it. also system restore only undo's system changes, so if youve got a virus in one of your downloads or something it will do jack s**t

Burn it,and then boot from it,and run the Anti Virus Stuff on it.

Or Boot Into Safe mode and run your Anti virus stuff.
woot ty!!!

also i dont know why im constantly getting viruses. I don't go to weird websites that i don't know of and i never dl anything except music. My friend doesnt have anti-virus either and he never catches any of this stuff. Is my computer infected with something that attracts viruses?

You clearly didn't do enough research to say this. I don't know the technical aspects of why u need to disable it, but there were lots of cases when it helped. Like Dude sad "also system restore only undo's system changes, so if you've got a virus in one of your downloads or something it will do jack s**t"

Where do u download ur music from? Do a temp folder clean as well as all ur browser history, cookies....etc
