My svchost.exe has seemed to have picked up some trojan that mbam can't get rid of. I'll scan, quarentine, and reboot but it still shows up again the next time I scan.
I've tried scanning in safe mode to no avail as well. I've had this trojan for quite some time now too, I've been trying to get rid of it for a couple of months (around valentine's day). It slows down the internet and MBAM keeps bringing up a message saying "it successfully blocked access to a potentionally malicious website".
I started noticing this when I got a pop-up asking to install a "anti-malware" program from Microsoft on a reboot after updating. That same pop-up happens after every update as well.

Here's my MBAM log:

Hello, we need to het a bit deeper to get this one out.

Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
