Startup Entry

This entry is classified as malware, spyware, adware, or other potentially unwanted software.

If the description states that it is malware, you should immediately run a trusted anti-virus and anti-spyware tool.

Item Details
Name: GNP Generic Host Process
Filename: svchost.exe
Description: Added by the Troj/Zapchas-R TROJAN!
This file is placed in the C:\Winnt\System or C:\Windows\System folder, and should NOT be confused with the legitimate Windows svchost.exe process, always located in the Winnt\System32 or Windows\System32 folder, and which moreover should NOT figure in Msconfig/Startup!

This is a Startup entry, not a running process - although it may be visible in Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) if it continues running after startup. Before ending a process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it is listed as an "X", please check whether it's actually set to start using MSCONFIG or another tool.

Some bad startup entries use the same names as common Windows processes, and it may be difficult to distinguish between them in Task Manager. If in doubt, seek advice before doing anything.
