Svcvmx virus

Svcvmx virus is a dangerous ad-clicking Trojan[1] is usually installed together with third-party programs like s5Mark, so users rarely notice its infiltration. Trojans are one of the most dangerous computer infections as they can hide within the system for a long time without being detected, install other malware, and avoid detection.

The main functionality of Svcvmx is to connect to multiple remote websites in the background, and it does not matter which browser is used – Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc. Nevertheless, the symptoms of the infections can be seen immediately, as long as users know where to look.

The very first sign of the infection is the Svcvmx.exe or svcvmx client process running in the background, the location of which is C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\ntuserlitelist\svcvmx. Due to an excessive amount of the connections to various websites, users will also notice slow operation of the browser, high CPU usage, slow internet speed, and overall sluggishness of the PC. Another distinct feature of Svcvmx Trojan is its ability to disable the anti-malware component if it is installed. When trying to open, the user will be presented with an  “The Requested Resource is in Use” error message.

Therefore, it is highly likely that you will find the described Trojan in an email attachment or alongside illegal software pack.

Needless to say, you should not be trying to install illegal software such as cracks or keygens to access licensed software versions for free. Such programs are highly malicious and can clutter your system with keyloggers, spyware, browser toolbars, and other hazardous junkware that slows down the system.

To protect yourself from such viruses, consider installing anti-malware software and stay away from questionable files, programs and in general, any type of suspicious content while browsing online. Nevertheless, sometimes even seemingly secure installers might not be like that at all, so you should always pay attention to the installation process of all freeware applications you are installing.
