Are you able to boot into safe mode?.. (F8), if you can before doing so, I would download Hitman Pro 3.5., and do a scan in safe mode to see what it can find. Make sure to rename the file as 1234.exe or something to that effect, because malware and etc, can disable tools (such as Anti-Virus software) that would help you get rid of the infection.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but TrueSword is a scam/rouge Anti-Virus. At, least, I thought it was?. Your best bet is to boot into safe mode again, and see if a scan with Combo Fix found here will fix the issue.

Dear xryanx,

True Sword last was suspected as rogue in 2006. But then it was removed from all lists and participated in different tests. Now it has fullfunctional free 1 month trial. That is not the way rogue software works. True Sword seems to be quality scanner now.

Combofix is very effective and powerful. But be careful - and i don't suggest using it on XP laptops (desktops are fine). Don't know why, but it ruined several XP laptops on my experience.

An infected Svchost by a virus or malware attack usually runs like a Svchost.exe service. In this case it is recommended that you should upgrade your virus protection guard to combat this problem. In addition to this you must also visit the Microsoft Windows Update Page which gives you essential support for Windows update. However, if no virus or malware it detected by the antivirus program in your computer then this implies that the Svchost.exe file is not infected. Further, if you receive the 0xe03c3a68 Svchost.exe error then it essentially means that the computer memory is corrupted by the blaster virus.
