FWIW - We don't flame here. It's against the rules and it's strictly enforced. BC is a nice family sorta place - and that's why I'm here!
svchost.exe is the filename for Generic Host Process for Win32 Services. Essentially, it is a process that can run other services underneath itself - so it may not be svchost.exe that's the issue, but rather one of the processes running underneath it.
The most definitive way to figure this out is to identify which svchost.exe process this is and then using the free program Process Explorer (available here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...ssExplorer.mspx
) to see what's running underneath it.
If you experiment with stopping the svchost.exe processes in Task Manager - you'll find that you can stop some, but others will shutdown the system due to Windows requirements. This leaves you 59 seconds to go to Start...Run...and type in "shutdown -a" (without the quotes) and press Enter. This will abort the shutdown process (but may leave you with strange system behavior).
You haven't mentioned the results of your malware scans - but it's possible that something is still left, or it can be that the "cure" for removing the malware caused this. The "szModName: Unknown" in your last screenshot could also indicate that this was malware related.
Most commonly viruses get through because they're unwittingly allowed onto the system (which bypasses all the protection). At work the most common reasons we see are:
1) Opening an email without scanning it first
2) Opening a download without scanning it first
3) Clicking on the wrong thing on the internet (the bad guys will deliberately make this as confusing as possible in order to get you to click).
Finally, probably the easiest place to check for additional information on this error is your Event Viewer. Go to Start...Run...and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Check in both the System and Application logs for errors - double click on the errors to get more info.
