SVCHOST -- what to do?

  Chris Clayton 15:49 08 Feb 2007

I have installed Task Manager Quick Access add-on as recommended in PCADVISOR. It says some of the several instances svchost.exe are Trojans and should be removed. I have scanned with my Norton Anti-virus which says no malware is detected. What should I do?

Quick Access looks like a really useful program for those of us mystified by the list of running processes but the false positives thing is a bit off-putting.
Have there been any further developments?
