netsvc in services list

  Press Man 01:33 29 Jan 2007

hi guys,
When looking thru the services list i noticed "netsvc" it has no description? is this normal or is it something "nasty"? if so how can I remove it? Thanks in advance.

But you've got a virus problem


This is according to Sysinfo click here

You need to do an up to date virus check (ideally with restore turned off)

I have scanned with Kaspersky AV, Spysweeper, adaware A2 etc and nothing has turned up. Will doing an AV scan with restore turned off and in safe mode find it? If not is there any other way of removing it or is it a reinstall.

Please check the EXACT spelling.....

NETSVC.exe can also be a valid Windows Service... See click here

In the services list all it decribes is netsvc no explination of what it is only that a file is missing?

The service is listed but the file it runs is missing. If it's malicious it can't do anything now.

Have you removed any viruses recently?

No, I have not removed any viruses at all. Kaspersky AV has not detected any either? I have disabled this service. Also I have searched for netsvc and netsvc.exe but found nothing? Is there a way of removing netsvc from the list? What else can I do to be sure that it is not a threat, apart from a re-install?

Just leave it. It says itself the file is missing.
