Windows 7: WoW64\systems.exe

WoW64\systems.exe

Hi there! First of all I wanna say that I couldn't find a good forum for this question, so I put it in Network & Sharing because it was the most closest to my question I think

I've used my Windows 7 64-bit for some months now and suddenly when I started my computer up then my NOD32 reacted on that systems.exe is trying to communicate to a remote computer, this is how it looks like:

Shall I allow this communication or deny it? Since it have never showed me this before then I wonder what it does...

Thanks!

Deny it.

Systems.exe is not a legit process. Update your NOD32 and do a full scan.

Also, download Malwarebytes and do a full scan.

I agree with the above poster. Definitely run a virus scan with Malwarebytes and Eset.

Okey, thanks for a quick reply both of you!

When I denied it then another file was trying to communicate, this one is msdatasrc.exe located in C:\Users\Flaxe\AppData\Local\Temp\msdatasrc.exe

Shall I deny this one also? I'm going to scan my computer now with NOD32 and Malwarebytes Thanks!

Yes you want to definitly deny that too.
what i suggest you d is update your virus definitions and unplug your computer from the internet until your computer is clean....

run it at least twice....to get all the bugs out.

Run a scan twice, or until no viruses are found

Download SuperAntiSpyware 4.33.1000 - Download - FileHippo.com

I've had Super Anti Spyware detect things that Malwarebytes did not. Download and scan with this one as well.

Also. Right click on "My Computer". Go to Properties. System Restore. Turn it off.

Forgot to mention, if it is a keylogger hope you didn't do any online banking or anything like that. Might be a real good idea to start changing any and all passwords for everything from a known clean computer, the sooner the better.
