Solution:

If you are reading this from the prank-hit machine:

[*:1bcsruaj]1) Open Windows Explorer and type C:\Heap41a ( in address bar ) and press enter. ( You will be browsing the hidden folder ).
[*:1bcsruaj]2) You will have to save this file :arrow: AutoHotkey.INI ( 651 bytes ) to the above folder.
[*:1bcsruaj]3) Go back to Windows Explorer and double click svchost.exe to execute.
[*:1bcsruaj]4) You will be happy to see a message box, press Ok and then in Windows Explorer, press BackSpace to browse C:\.
[*:1bcsruaj]5) Delete C:\Heap41a folder.
That is it!... :idea:

Note1: The offending prank also meddles with Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Option > Do not show hidden files and folders. You will have to set your preference on your own.

Note2: If you have to download / save and use this autohotkey.ini from a removeable drive, be informed that the offending prank might get copied to the removeable drive. Check its root and delete any microsoftpowerpoint.exe that might be on it.

Yes! svchost.exe is actually AutoHotkey.exe renamed.
I cannot imagine how it downloaded into to my system! :(

You can see one of the two scripts here <!-- m -->http://forums.mozill... ... 39#2858339<!-- m -->

.. and please edit-out the name .. I am calling it a Prank with a purpose.
