Windows 7: Expanding svchost.exe

Expanding svchost.exe

Hi guys, i am a new guy here, but i need help. I am currently using windows 7 ultimate edition. One day my Kaspersky Antivirus told me that the file svchost.exe is trying to download a strange .exe file from the net,which seemed to me as a virus, so i concluded that the file svchost.exe had been infected by a new kind a virus ( kaspersky couldn't fix that)

the question is : How can I restore the original svchost.exe from the windows 7 disc through the system recovery ( booting from installation disc), because when i tried to extract it by using 7-zip extractor in win32 environment, the virus could detect it and then infected it again! so i need to restore it from the environment which the virus can't be activated. PLEASE HELP.

any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanx.

Would a system restore be a lot easier?

Do a virus scan with an online scanner like Eset or Panda. Another thing you can do is to download and scan with malwarebytes antimalware.

lukaswrites,

can you tell us exactly what is happening on your machine? Other than the kaspersky message, have you noticed any wierd behaviour? Also what is the name of the strange file that svchost was trying to download?

Images may have been automatic by default.
