Windows 7: Suspicious service "ABKR"

Suspicious service "ABKR"

Today I was going through my services to check some stuff out and I've noticed this:
Suspicious service "ABKR"-service.jpg
So I went to that "temp" folder to look for ABKR.exe, and there's nothing there. Looks like it's been deleted or something, I remember having some viruses a couple of months ago, guess I'll scan again with malwarebytes today, but does anybody know anything about this ? I googled and nothing except for some sites that WOT marks with red. My system is running as usual, but I just thought I should check here.

Download TDSSKiller and save it to your Desktop.
  • Extract the file and run it.
  • Once completed it will create a log in the root directory (usually C:\).
  • Please post the contents of that log in your next reply.

Link doesn't appear to work.
EDIT: but I found what you were trying to send me. So I'll give it a shot later, right now I'm scanning with malwarebytes. Everything still looks fine on CPU usage, RAM usage, same as usual.

Oh, didn't know it would be that quick, here's the log, sorry for the delay.
TDSSKiller.2.7.34.0_04.05.2012_22.40.54_log.txt There were no detected threats with the program you sent me. Everything looked good in malwarebytes, gonna give hitman pro a shot as well. Did a windows defender quick scan too.

EDIT: once again, everything looks clean.

Here are my active connections:
Suspicious service "ABKR"-active-connections.jpg

Sometimes I get more connections on PID 0, I have no idea what that means, I just use this to see if any unknown or suspicious process connects to the internet. Any idea what else I should try ?

Is your net secured with an encryption like WPA or WPA2? if not then I suggest doing it as someone may be piggy backing on your signal and if you do then they have sniffed your access code for the net.

Yes my connection (currently wireless) is secured through WPA2-PSK, and there are more people using this connection.

Well, actually, currently I live in student housing, so just a couple of students using internet through a router. I have the network set to public though.

Johnny,
When you say you made a scan with windows defender, would you please list the steps you took and when you performed this check/

you did declare the network as Public?

your AV is?
