SVCHOST.EXE is trying connect to DNS Server or Internet

Unread postby detschi » December 21st, 2007, 8:45 am

Help! I tried Spyware Terminator and Norton AntiVirus Scan. Spyware Terminator found 4 threats which it removed. No all the scans are clear, but I keep on getting High Risk Security Alerts that svchost.exe is attempting to connect to a DNS server or to the Internet. I have no idea about computers and really need help.
Here is my Hijackthis log:

Hello and welcome to the forums

My name is Katana and I will be helping you to remove any infection(s) that you may have.

Please observe these rules while we work:
1. If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
2. Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
3. Please continue to respond until I give you the "All Clear"
(Just because you can't see a problem doesn't mean it isn't there)

If you can do those three things, everything should go smoothly :D

You have an awful lot going on there, and most of it looks nasty.
To be on the safe side, I suggest that you change any passwords that you use for online activities using a different computer
Especially any banking or financial passwords

Lets find out what we are dealing with

Kaspersky Online Scanner .
Your Antivirus and/or Antispyware may give a warning during the scan. This is perfectly normal
Go Here http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

Read the Requirements and limitations before you click Accept.
Allow the ActiveX download if necessary
Once the database has downloaded, click Next.
Click Scan Settings and change the "Scan using the following antivirus database" from standard to extended and then click OK.
Click on "My Computer" and then put the kettle on!
When the scan has completed, click Save Report As...
Enter a name for the file in the Filename: text box and then click the down arrow to the right of Save as type: and select text file (*.txt)
Click Save - by default the file will be saved to your Desktop, but you can change this if you wish.

Please post the Kaspersky log in your reply.
