It doesn't necessarily mean it is hacked, because changes would require administrator privileges and also Windows doesn't allow changes to it's system file. Some of the SVCHosts are basically background services of Windows and connect to the Internet to perform their function (or upgrade) so it's normal. What you should be checking is (c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts) by editing it and checking if it lists any suspicious IP address.

Thank you for this software I just installed it and did scan nothing showed up. However this is scaring me I reinstalled BRAND new Windows 7 with Clean install with clean format of the drive. I installed only Drivers, system software AVG and some utilities. I checked AVG it was all fine no logs .....and just now I checked logs again. Just looks at time ....7 something per second ... and it's OUTBOUND ...what a hell is going on people I am cursed or what. Windows is clean all software are legit too including AVG ...please help I am losing hope in Windows ...(Ubuntu ?)

I am unable to zoom the image to get a look at it. I would first have go and do some research anyway as there is a malware that looks remarkably like svchost.exe, although with a reformat and reinstallation it should have been removed. I don't know if this will work or not: Try Right clicking on the ip address and then copy. go to www.ipchecking.com. In the box paste the ipaddress and then click. It should tell you who or what is on the other end.

Svchost.exe is essentially a big box that Windows stores a bunch of smaller services in to save space. It's a part of the OS. Some of these services use the network to update and such, which is probably why you're seeing connections. It's a very common process to see running in your task manager and there's typically no reason to worry about it. May I ask what exactly it's doing to make you think it's hacked?
