I've noticed the process svch0st.exe running on my computer lately, obviously some type of spyware or most probably a virus.

I've ran 3 virus checks, all have detected viruses but I think they're not this one in particular as everytime I reboot it appears in my running processes again.

Does anyone know the name of this virus and if there are any removal tools?

click here you may find this of interest. I don't think it is a problem it is a process file.

Sorry about my last post it seems to have been hi jacked. Type scvhOst.exe into google & you will find lots of information.

I haven't actually checked your links yet but I'm not sure if people are clear that this is some type of virus or spyware, not the usual Windows svchost.exe due to the replacement of an o with a zero 0.
