Hi borgmdl, welcome to 7F

You might have a malware problem. Take a look here: No svchost running at all

You do not have to use a USB stick, but it makes it easier, if not just download to your desktop.
If you have any problems running this or any other on-line scanner try running in Safe Mode

You might have to use Safe mode with Networking, and rename the file.
