Servicemgr.exe file will store in c:\winnt\system32\servicemgr.exe and will overwrite on all exe files and will capture the pasword information stored in sys and will send those information to the author. OS related files will be corrupted and keep on asking for OS CD to insert for reparing the files.

Best practices for resolving ServiceMgr issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with ServiceMgr. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
