If you want a detailed security rating about your ntsrv.exe (and all other running background processes) download the free trial version of Security Task Manager.

Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection! Check it out!

Oivan The same name of a system file, but in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\DRIVER folder is suspicious. Cannot end it or remove it - ID as BDS/Iroffer.14b2 with Antivir
zhupf I found it at C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\DRIVER folder, it is run as a service. Maybe it's a FTP server program of a Trojen program. folder is hidden.
moshebagelfresser Yes it landed on my computer and I managed with BitDefender 9 to Quarantine it, and although I have not yet deleted it will use Knoppix to delete it from Quarantine.
