    i think it would be best if you wentHERE first, as scvhost.exe could be a virus. do the necessary scans etc, then post the log from 'hijack this'. important!! place hjt in its own folder in programme files, and change its name to 'analyse this 1991'

    if you cllick on the link, it will take you to instructions for cleaninig your pc. once there it will tell you where to get it from and what to do with it too. it is a programme that scans your pc on demand/required, it then produces a log of processes runnning in your pc. from that it can be determined if there are any trojans, worms, adware spyware covertly working in your pc.
