Windows 7: scvhost.exe virus

scvhost.exe virus

I have a virus in the System32 directory called svchost.exe
Avast says it's trying to connect to an URL and blocking it but the message keeps popping up
I am now trying to download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to remove it but every time I try to download something it's failing because apparently it contains a virus. I have tried to download other programs too and I keep getting the same message. I'm thinking it has something to do with the svchost virus.

Does anyone know how to remove it?

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I just didn't know where to post.

Do you have access to another clean machine to download files ?

If so you could try a bootable AV scan

I would recommend using a clean pc to download and burn a disc then boot the infected machine from it
