Problem Summary: SVCHOST.EXE Trojan

I noticed my internet was slowing down exponetially and my computer also. I have AVG protection and that caught minor threats and dealt with them. I then installed malwarebytes because my computer was still having huge issues. Malewarebytes found the Svchost.exe virus. It quarantined the virus, but approx every 10 seconds the trojan recomes back up and and gets blocked again. Any help with this situation would be greatly appreciated! This is the file that malewarebites is continually blocking.

Problem Summary: Svc Host, windows update, system restore, slow internet

when i start up my system svchost is running hard, if i quickly open a program it may finally open as well as internet explorer, i looked at svc host and seems all processes running under that particlar svc host should be there, it just uses a lot of ram, then shortly after startup i can't open anything. windows update is not updating, says it is not running, system has not created a system restore in 3 months and will not allow me to create one, i ran cccleaner and it shows files to remove from the registry when i click fix,and run the scan again they are back, mostly norton files. Norton wants to clean my registry but comes back with error can't create restore point, so it fails. Help me. Do i have virus
Norton, malwarebytes and superanti-spyware finds nothing. Originally it found trojans and rootkits,after removal it says it finds no threats. I am still have system instability. after the host svc stops working everything of course locks up.
Also i get appcrashes, blue screen with 0x0000008e(0xc0000005,0x8248add1,0x8756b917, 0x00000000)

I am running Windows Vista Home premium 32 bit on Sony laptop
