Svchost.exe is a legit file and part of OS. Svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs). Looks like your system is infected and VIPRE has not been successful at cleaning it properly.

svchost.exe is located in windows system32 folder as you have pointed it rightly. Still make sure the name is svchost.exe and not any other variation like scvhost.exe which is definitely a virus.

I suggest you run the system in safe mode and then do a thorough scanning with VIPRE with updated definition. It should help.
You need a good anti virus who can easily remove trojan. You can go with macafee its able to remove this virus.
