This thing is driving me nuts -

Tried to log onto AOL yesterday - as soon as I hit sign on my PC restarted - went into a cycle where it would reboot - for ever -

my spy ware now keeps finding something called COMMAND SERVICES - I have tried 4 different spy ware programs - they seem to kill it - but then it comes back.

I uninsulated AOL - reinstalled AOL - ran virus / spy ware - and everything seemed to be normal again -

then COMMAND SERVICES pops back up.

Anyone know how to kill this beast/

Download and unzip Ren-cmdservice to your desktop.
It will only work correctly if the folder is placed on your desktop and extracted.

http://downloads.subratam.org/Lon/ren-cmdservice.zip

Open the ren-cmdservice folder by doubleclicking it and then doubleclick the
ren-cmdservice.bat file to run the program.
A text will open when it is finished, Copy it if you can.
Then restart.

cmdService Not present

Post this in the forum please.

OK - should this solve the problem?

I just ran my spyware program and it still finds COMMAND SERVICES

I ran it 2 more times - it keeps coming back

It may be a false positive. What antivirus and antispyware programs do you have?

BTW - Thanks for the help - I was within minutes of using the hammer to fix this thing.

Anti virus - McAfee

I also ran Windows malicious software tool

I normally use Ad-ware and AOLspyware protection

but since this issue have also tried Spybot, Superantispyware and Dr. Web anti virus

When I try and start the PC it goes to a screen that has several options

safe mode
One other option I can't recall
Last good configuration
normal

If I select safe or normal mode it does not boot up - it just (eventually) takes me back to the same screen

If I select - last good configuration it will boot up.

Shortly after boot up is complete i get the notice from AOLspyware that COMMAND SERVICE has been found and blocked.

If I click on AOL start up button - my PC crashes and tries to reboot.

Bitter sweet -

I bought a new PC on Thursday - just got it all set up - the old one (that I am having problems with now) still worked - I planned to keep it as a back up!

I recommend uninstalling McAfee, Adaware(new version is trouble), Superantispyware, Dr Web and AOL spyware protection.

Try the Comodo security programs.
