Hi, i just did a quick scan with MAWB, and it came up with the "svighost.dll" indicated as a "trojan". I am not sure if I shold remove it or not, since i am not sure of its function, I´ve heard it´s part of windows. Any advices? Thanks.

Hello, This is possibly a False positive. We should double check it before we take action.

Lets' upload this file for a second opinion on what it actually is..

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:
How to see hidden files in Windows

Please click this link-->Jotti

When the jotti page has finished loading, click the Browse button and navigate to the following file and click Submit.

Please post back the results of the scan in your next post.

If Jotti is busy, try the same at Virustotal: http://www.virustotal.com/

For submission to a specific anti-virus vendor see Submitting Virus Samples: How to Submit a Virus.
