Trojan horse in svchost.exe... What?

Hey.

I was checking virusses, but then I was something really strange. AVG antivirusscanner 8.5 gave a Trojan horse in 'svchost.exe'... But that's a Windows file, right?

The RC was the last Windows 7 download from Microsoft...

The RTM will not be released as a download to the general public do to it being the full edition of Windows 7

You will have to get the RC from a trusted source BUT you can still get a key from Microsoft that will last you till March 2010

Also remember that Windows 7 will release to the public October 22
