It doesn't seem to have been a problem, but I tend to stick with the main known players rather than something I haven heard of. It is difficult to know who are the main players as some reviews are written by the company itself, without stating an interest or affiliates who also have a vested interest. If you have a trusted forum that you frequent (avast hint), then actual user input is likely to be better. Lookout for users signatures as it will frequently show what programs they are using, hint.

Frequently a free scan when used as a hook will throw up detections which are non-existent and states that you have to purchase the paid option to remove them. It is called giving the user a headache so you can sell the aspirin.

So if that happens it should be a warning, that it might not be a great choice.

You could try booting into safe mode http://www.pchell.com/support/safemode.shtml - or by trying the Last known good option.

i already tried booting in safe mode i cant even get to last good configuration im beginning to think this was not a virus she got all of a sudden from the game she downloaded im wondering if it been in the computer a bit longer and was doing damage shes not be scanning as often as she should she asked me to show install her antivirus software which is avast i scanned and got loads of viruses put them to chest and showed her how to use spydoctor but she hasnt been doing what she should she thinks it will never happen to her at the end of my patients as she is here now with me and just admitted not doing what she should so maybe this is her price to pay  ???

Personally I don't think it would be a deliberate act by any virus, after all it really doesn't want to disable your system but to use it to spread, etc.

Though there are possible conflicts that might arise if they were to corrupt system files whilst trying to get established.

It is a bit of a futile exercise trying to get information on only the malware name as there is no standardisation or naming convention, this is even more difficult when it is generic detections (the -gen at the end of the name). You are more likely to get better information searching for the infected file name.

You would be advised to have your friend follow the instructions Tech gave in reply #5 of this topic.

tvdxrools  you have two threads open- a sure invitation to a disaster
If you see this respond in THIS thread
and if you are working on two different computers keep them in separate threads

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/what-is-svchostexe-and-why-is-it-running/

do not delete anything without googleing first- quarantine or move to vault/ chest

http://research.sunbelt-software.com/threatdisplay.aspx?name=Trojan.TDSServ&threatid=383885
I found the same things you found now what about the others

you need to post the entire log

now
where is all tis stuff coming from?
What Firewall are you using?

please rt click avast ball and update programs
then rt click avast ball and schedule boot time scan
reboot - move all hits to chest as suggested and post log

then go to Malwarebytes.org
run Rogue Remover Free- let it deal with whatever it finds
AND
MalwareBytes Anti Malware  MBAM
update
check the box next to all nasties
click REMOVE CHECKED- a backup will be made
post the log

along with
read the stickie about HJT at the top of this forum
post a fresh HJT done AFTER the above

take your time and do these correctly
anything not clear post back

apologize to the OP in the other thread for hijacking his thread
