New timer if and if I screw up something let me know. about 6 weeks ago, system always running slow, looking at task manager kept seeing SVChost running under my user name consuming memory and Cpu, and would have no services associated with it.  Im not a computer guy, so I would just end the process but within minutes back up and running,   I ran the  sfc /scannow, nothing   The only way to hold if off was not to acknowledge the pop up that said Host process for windows stopped working.   I ran the hell out of my mal ware bytes numerous times nothing, microsoft security essentials, just a Trojan, but nothing else. lot of stuff on line about SVChost going nuts, a lot to go through, hardly any of it useful.  Ran TSDDkiller nothing, ran Rkill and it all looked fine with the exception of

Performing miscellaneous checks:

 * ALERT: ZEROACCESS rootkit symptoms found!

Ran TSDD and all the malware programs again and nothing.  I then stumbling across combofix and ran that, and have included the log below, don't really know how to read it but BOOM after the reboot, no more SVChost coming on and growing and damn the machine is fast.  I would appreciate any insight.and any advice ...thanks
