My Avast Anti Virus keeps on telling me that the file, svchost.exe is suspicious, but tells me to ignore it.
As there seems no problem with my computer, should I be wary of the file.

So if it is located in C:\Windows\System32 as per ventad's link you've nothing to worry about. Anywhere else could be a problem.
