Hello and welcome to MBAM forum, seanxke:

You are correct -- svchost.exe is a legitimate Windows file; however, it is often /patchedinfected by malware.

The outgoing blocks to a Chinese IP by svchost.exe suggest that you might be infected.

The only way to know for sure is to have a qualifed malware expert take a look at your system, with the complete MBAM logs and those from other malware tools.

We cannot work on malware removal in this sub-section of the forum, so please read below for assistance with cleaning your system.

--> There is also more information about the IP blocking module in the FAQ - Section G (and in the Helpdesk topics HERE and HERE).

IMPORTANT: Please do NOT use any temporary file cleaners unless instructed to do so - they can cause data loss, making recovery difficult.
