svchost files. What will happen if deleted?

Recommended Posts

Just about a minute ago I was battling this worm virus that infect from My College => My Thumbdrive => My computer

 

This virus prevent me from opening the Firefox program with the message "Use Internet Explorer You Dope" and so with my computer knowledge and the help from the free anti-virus software, I managed to locate the virus.

 

But right now there's two folders with odd extension name and folder. One is called "heap41a" while the other called "MicrosoftPowerPoint", I scanned it and eliminated the viruses in there but it left some files in there called "svchost". This thingy has about 7 of them running in the computer process and I couldn't detect which one is the one that comes along with the virus.

 

I was thinking of just ending its process and delete it but will it affect the computer or something?

Actually, it is prefectly normal to have 7 svchost files running. I am unsure of their role, but it has to do with networking. (as far as I remember)

Um, I kinda solved the problem now. The two other svchost really is a virus since it has this weird looking icon on it. I deleted both and probably it won't be bothering me again anymore.
