Hi there. This is really just a question.
I have read that the only place svchost.exe should be located is in \system32. I have found one in the \service folder and I CANNOT DELETE IT!

I'm quite sure it's a pretty bad virus, and none of the scanners I've used have worked. They find it but it keeps coming back.

So, what do u think?
