It is a Services Control Manager, which is responsible for running, ending, and interacting with system services.

Notice that: C:\windows\system32\services.exe is normal, but with C:\windows\services.exe is not normal and therefore might be a trojan.

This file should be located in %windir%/system32 (ex. C:\Windows\System32) if not or is found outside this system folder it could be a trojan.

Try deleting it with Security Task Manager then delete the directory and the entries in the registry : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run & HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.

C windows system32 keyboard services.exe


Hi,
The virus that cause in action in these system file's is using up of pen-drive's without running an anti-virus check before accessing it,if people's use pen-drive's in like internet cafe's or anything like that.You can wipe it of if you know how exactly find the file in the registry.(The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUP.).I personally recommend to use Avira Ant-virus or Kaspersky works well and don't slow down the system.
Please find out the URL link.

Hope this Helped!

Keyboard\service.exe not found error


This is a virus that infected your computer. There is no "keyboard\service.exe" file in Windows. Your antivirus likely removed it but it's still trying to load up on start up.

Go start->Run and type in "msconfig"
Then go to the startup tab on the window that appears and look for that particular exe file and disable it. You shouldn't get the message anymore.

Also clean your harddisk wint an antivirus program

Access violation at address 0052D602


Sorry If this doesnt help your problem but here is some info that might help


"
Consent.exe is part of Windows Vista - it's the User Access Control (UAC) executable.

There is a known malware version of this executable. Do a search on your hard drive (within Windows Vista, obviously) for all consent.exe files - make sure you include hidden and system files in the search criteria.

Once the search has completed, right-click on each file and check the file properties.

There is a MalWare version of Consent.exe
Right Click ALL of the ones you find and look for
Microsoft details in Properties

  • File Names Used: 3
  • Paths Used: 8
  • Common File Name: CONSENT.EXE
  • Common Path: ?:\windows.old\windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-lua_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.5728.16387_none_ef1113b929fe5371\
  • Vendor Information: Microsoft Corporation
  • Product Information: Consent UI for administrative applications
  • Version Information: 6.0.5728.16387
  • CONSENT.EXE may use 3 or more path and file names, these are the most common:
  • 1 :%windir%\winsxs\backup\X86_MICROSOFT-WINDOWS-LUA_31....A1C2
  • 2 :?:\windows.old\windows\winsxs\backup\X86_MICROSOFT-WINDOWS-LUA_31....A1C2
  • 3 :?:\X86_MICROSOFT-WINDOWS-LUA_31....A1C2

  • If you find a consent.exe anywhere else in the search results, I'd delete that file. Run a thorough anti-virus scan of the harddrive. I'd also download spybot and run it as well as downloading Ad-Aware from Lavasoft and using it to scan as well.

    Spybot and Ad-Aware can find different spyware/malware, which is why I recommend running both products.

    Once you've done all that, reboot the system. That should fix the problem.

    Unknown file


    In software Svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) within the Microsoft Windows operating system.
    At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services part of the registry to construct a list of services that it must load. Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services. Therefore, separate services can run, depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This grouping of services permits better control and easier debugging, but it also causes some difficulty for end users wishing to see the memory usage or vendor legitimacy of individual services and processes. End users in Windows XP Professional (and derivatives, such as Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP Media Center Edition) can run the following command at the system prompt to get a breakdown:
    tasklist /svc /fi "imagename eq svchost.exe" (NB: This command does not work in Windows XP Home.)
    Due to being widespread among running processes, svchost.exe has long been a common disguise used by malware to hide its presence from the user. (One of the common trojan horses deceptively uses scvhost.exe). Users may then run tasklist with no arguments and match the reported PIDs with the previously shown Svchost instances. If memory usage appears abnormal, the user can look up the service names shown by their command on the internet to see if it is a known service or malware.
    The Svchost.exe file is located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder. The main registry key involved at bootup is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SvcHost (values in this key will show the user at least a partial list of the actual processes behind instances of svchost).
    The 30 April, 2007 release of WSUS 3.0 led to reports of svchost.exe issues, including 100% CPU usage, memory hogging, and excessive laptop fan/power usage.[1]

    On startup, i get the message: Isass.exe - Access Denied


    Information on lsass.exe - http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/lsass.exe.html

    Are you running a firewall (such as zonealarm)? It might be your firewall may be blocking a legit attempt by lsass.exe to run. You may have to add this to your firewall's allowed list. Of course if you are not running a firewall or if your firewall is already set to allow lsass you may have even greater problems.
