  1. Basically, I'm having the same problem as this thread:
    http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/how-do-I-remove-svchost-exe-trojan-agent.183522/

    Malwarebytes detects 2 trojans in svchost.ece and says it will remove them on restart, but they always come back

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.62.0.1300
