Hello there,


I am having a problem with my Avast Anti-virus telling me that my system has a virus, It's telling me that this is that it is Svchost file that is the problem. Although I have read online that alot of people are also having this same issue with their computer. I have ran the Fubar tool and will attach the logs below. I also attempted to run Combofx although It doesn't support Windows 8.1. I have ran multiple scans on my system with Both Avast, Malwarebytes in both safe mode and normal boot mode and never once detected the svchost then. If someone could people help me out or atleast  point me in the direction of a fix that would be great.
