Help! Had the XP Antivirus 2011 problem, got rid of it, but now got svchost .exe problem.

Recommended Posts

Hi all! New to the forum, I had the XP Antivirus 2011 problem, & I got rid of it thanks to SAS but now I got this svchost.exe problem that I can't seem to get rid of. It takes up a massive amount of CPU usage when it runs, and the outbound traffic is crazy, and it only runs when I have my internet connection hooked up. SAS doesn't seem to pick it up, MAM doesn't, & Avast seems to pick up something but can't get rid of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Svchost is part of windows; what symptoms of infection are you still experiencing beyond the CPU usage?

Here is a windows link that contains information on the file and the processes that should be attributed to it:
