svchost.exe hogging internet bandwidth
Posted on 2010-08-31
I am working on an older Dell Dimension 4300 w/ WINDOWS XP that had a pretty bad Malware infection. I thought I got it cleaned up but after leaving the system on overnight, i came in the next day and it is constantly uploading somthing at a steady 1MB per second. I have ran all of my tools again and still does it.
EDIT: I determined it was uploading by looking at out routers live bandwidth stats, and also Windows XP Task Manager.
I have all services disabled as well as startup programs. If needed, I can post a Hijackthis log or whatever you need so we can figure this out.
Wanted to add that i just ended a svchost.exe prosess and now its not uploading.
Like always, Thanks ahead of time for your help.
