sound like you have had a run in with a backdoor trojan that stays in C:\windows\system32\svcinit.exe

It's a keylogger, and always tempts to connect itself to the internet and report to head office.

check for the file and remove it .
then search the regestry with regedit and remove and entry of the file name.

good luck.
