Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Keep in mind, different viruses affect different systems in different ways. Please include some information about your system set up, such as your operating system.

This one can be pretty nasty considering SVCHOST is a system process.

I would suggest using Spybot Search and Destroy to scan and clean your system.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus is also great software.

    I feel for you on this one. A while ago I had the same trojan pop up on my tablet pc. I used WebRoot and 'removed' it several times without success. Each time I did a scan afterward, it would still be right there. Hopefully the Spybot Search and Destroy or the Kaspersky Anti-Virus would help. Can't hurt trying, just wouldn't recommend WebRoot. I'd be interested to find out what works for you. Needless to say I haven't used my tablet in a while since I got a mac recently. If I find anything I'll let you know though.
