I'm new to the forums and am really glad to have found it!

I've recently formatted my pc and installed Eset Smart Security, and I'm getting a lot of connection requests from svchost.exe, both inbound and outbound.

A friend told me to allow both of them and this morning I've noticed the AntiVirus has picked up and quarantined an Adware called Win32/Adware.Virtumonde that has infected svchost.exe and swdsvc.exe

I'm not sure what to do now, should svchost.exe be allowed any connection?
