It really depends on where the svchosts file is located. Most bad ones will be found outside of the system32 folder. Some really sneaky ones will run from within the system32 folder.

Try running AdAware, Spybot, and or HijackThis if the first two don't catch anything.

CCleaner deleted it. At least I hit delete. Now I'm running COMODO Anti-virus scan. Additionally I googled it and I figured out that you get it when the mail update from MSN pops up and you click on it.

Comodo also does that. I just disable the HIPS thing where it asks you permission to do everything. It gets very annoying. But yeah, it wasn't an infected virus or anything, just an e-mail pop up. Comodo even blocked the email from spreading.
