Could you confirm whether it is the malware which was killed by cleaning or both the malware and the svchost instance.

(I assume the former)

Did you run process explorer or task manager to check?

Many thanks


Hi, i run the malware, antivirus give an alert for 1 files, iencrypt.exe got removed from memory by sandbox(i think), svchost.exe come, drop out of memory, and still come every seconds, yes i run task manager for check.

and svchost.exe wasnt here, sorry for double post :a0
