Hi narenxp,

Thanks for the reply. The reason why I had mentioned svhost.exe was due to the fact that I recently had my computer attacked with a trojan (fake alert). I ran malware bytes and it cleared out the trojans except the svchost.exe. When the malware byte has completed its scan its shows that i have 2 trojan agents which are c:\\windows\svchost.exe.

Does this mean that c:\\windows\svchost.exe is a trojan?

Thanks
