How to remove CMDSRVS.EXE

CMDSRVS.EXE is a Trojan virus that easily got into your machine with your help, and was installed with unaware of it. CMDSRVS.EXE isn't useful and has no advantages, so it has to be uninstalled as soon as possible. The easiest method to neutralize the Trojan penetration is to understand how to recognize malware. Here is the short description of Trojan viruses, of their capabilities, pros and weaknesses. The name "Trojan" is very accurate: viruses of this kind secretly infest victims' machines, pretending to be useful tools, but they cannot spread themselves. Actually, Trojans are not real viruses, because viruses can reproduce and independently infect computers. Trojans depend on people totally, at all stages of their "life". The first host of young Trojan is its owner that gives it a guise of a decent program and places it on homely file-sharing service. Since then, the program waits until a naive visitor downloads it and installs it on his machine. We have to inform you that Trojans are infrequently distributed separately, but much more often in packages also known as “bundles” that contain several malware, Trojans, adware or viruses.


When Trojan finally gets into the system it starts to pursue its goals, which usually means nothing good for the computer. Trojans are the biggest sort of viruses, and may scrounge the passwords, call serious damage to the device or include your device in a criminal scam. Here's a complete enumeration of average manners to use Trojans:


  • Trojans, because of their stealthiness, are almost ideal utilities for spying on ordinary users. Trojan can dwell in infested PC for years, gathering data against its operator, passwords, visited sites, accounts and in general any text entered through keyboard.
  • The last of the popular ways of using Trojans is to create so-called botnets. Botnet is a web of hundreds or even thousands of systems, or some other "smart" devices, with which scammers are performing their smelly schemes. The list of purposes varies from DDoS attacks on any web-sites to massive malspam campaigns, and it usually leads to the limitations from Google for your IP address or the whole subnet.


All these ways of using Trojans can be carried out separately or simultaneously. Except written in the previous paragraphs key purposes, which at first-hand benefit Internet-criminals, Trojans have multiple side effects: they operate the CPU your device's recourses, clog the system with trashy tools and interfere to exploit the computer for its intended mission. Being aware of this, you will abide our advice and remove CMDSRVS.EXE once and for all.
