Tries to contact every half-hour or so. Downloads malware from there. its very easy to find in the temp folder, just go there and delete it

runs the windows task manager and fills up drive with unwanted task jobs

Downloads through ActiveX into c:\windows\temp and tries to connect to (I blocked it in Zone Alarm so I don't know what it tried to download, but it was probably the file u0L2Kw05.exe. Google, you'll find a lot of stuff about trojans and botnets). Infects programs on your Startup list with the virus Win32/PEPatch (in my case %Systemroot%\Updreg.exe and %Systemroot%\system32\Nerocheck.exe). Adds 24 scheduled tasks named At1.job through At24.job. Each task runs once a day, every day, so you run a task hourily. Every task runs %Systemroot%\system32\u0L2Kw05.exe.

Best practices for resolving svcipa issues

The following programs have also been shown useful for a deeper analysis: Security Task Manager examines the active svcipa process on your computer and clearly tells you what it is doing. Malwarebytes' well-known anti-malware tool tells you if the svcipa.exe on your computer displays annoying ads, slowing it down. This type of unwanted adware program is not considered by some antivirus software to be a virus and is therefore not marked for cleanup.

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding PC trouble. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic 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 resmon 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 DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
