I ran a scan on my laptop this afternoon to see what was slowing my laptop down. After a couple of fixes, I ran the system diagnostic, and Advance SystemCare identified one of the svchost.exe files as a trojan. I saved the attached HiJack This! compatible report produced. Can anyone please tell me if this is legitimate and how I can identify which file is the offender and how to remove it?

Thank you in advance,
