    Below is the report I have, these intruder attempts started and now my pc is acting all messed up but the AV scan (complete is clear and up to date and is Norton), could someone please help me and tell me what to do about it and how to make it stop. BTW these all started while I was on GBAtemp with no other windows open and other than paypal I havent and yahoo news I havent been on any other sites. No emails opened yet either and I am first one up so no one else has been on the PC. Help please.

    Norton sucks, Most free scanners are better than Norton anyway try downloading Microsoft Security Essentials and running a scan with that but by the looks of what you wrote, it should be fixed, "An intrusion attempt by (the above) was blocked. Application path \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME1\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SVCHOST.EXE" An attack was blocked but still get MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) It's free, make sure you update the definition/database file first then run a full system scan. You should also try looking here http://gbatemp.net/t208774-spyware-adware-...r-removal-guide

    Maybe run the scan in Safe Mode. Hope it helps bit tired atm to write more instructions (technical instructions) If none of the stuff listed works (that includes the gbatemp removal guide then I will guide you through some detailed explanations.

    Norton is terrible, but anything made by microsoft is hardly better.

    purchasing a proper security program (Kaspersky or AVG) will better help you. if MSE works then the attacker wasnt very smart [​IMG]

    Norton isn't actually such a bad AV anymore... but I feel they still deserve all the hate directed towards them. It's heavy, succeptible to false positives, rather difficult to uninstall, and they picked yellow for their UI (at least Kaspersky is a nice forest green), but they do catch most viruses these days. Once I even used it on someone's infested computer just because it was so heavy that it did a great job of cleaning it out... then it took half an hour to figure out how to fully uninstall it in favour of MSE for their very basic protection.

    Just don't get AVG. I've never come across an AV program more liable to getting crippled, hijacked, disabled, converted or generally destroyed by viruses over the years.

    With AVG, I've had both free and paid versions on my dad's computer and it just didn't help at all. With Norton, I believe there's no difference whether you're using the 30/60 day trial or the full package - it will still deal with viruses it encounters.

    MSE has some good ratings.

    Let us know what you found

    What I found is Norton was fine, my neighbor was trying to hijack my wireless signal and is an idiot/jerk. Also I upgraded to Win7, Office 2010, and bought a ex-us govn't hardware firewall with non comerical av/fw software on it. I got it at a govn't auction site, it is a 2009 hardwall with 4096 encryption and runs an av and soft fw that are made by a company called daebenware which apparently only supplies products to govn't institutions but it was a legit buy from the US govn't itself with 874 days left on updates so I am not complaining. It also acts as an 802.11b/g/n router, it has the ability to choose 1 of 3 bandwiths to broadcast on I am using 5ghz and it even offers the ability to broadcast in more than one encryption type at once so my DSi XL and Wii and PS3 and Laptop can all connect to the same network at max encryption and speed. Of course I paid $300 for it and 2 USB dongles but c'est la vie. It works great. The sticker on the side is gone but you can clearly tell it came from the IRS so not to happy about supporting them more than I already do but its a good investment.

    Wtf how did he get into your house?

    Anyways, I agree in saying Norton is definitely not the best choice for an AV.
    Kasperysky + Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware + weekly scans = good to go.

    But that's just my setup.
