How to remove xservice.exe malware from system using Comodo Cleaning Essentials?

CCE is a set of computer security tools designed to help you identify and remove malwares and unsafe processes from an infected computer.

To remove malwares using CCE, take the following steps:

  1. Check the system requirements and download the feature-rich CCE suite for free.

  • Smart Scan: Does a scan on critical areas of your system.
  • Full Scan: Does a complete scan of your system.
  • Custom Scan: Does a scan only on selected items.

Regardless of the type of scan you choose, the results will sometimes show false positive (flagging files that are actually safe), which has to be ignored. Only select the files you want to get rid of.

  1. Click 'Apply' to apply the selected operations to the threats. The selected operations will be applied.
