Svchost might be some kind of threat and windows reboot loop

Specs: Windows 7, AMD Athlon 2.8 GHz/4 gb
My computer may have some deep problems. I had AVG but it didnt really pick up anything unusual when I ran a normal scan. When ever im on task manager i see that svchost.exe is eating away about 200mbs. I know that svchost is normal and is located in system32, but this one is located in syswow64. Havent had this trouble before. And when I scan and delete some infected files and try to reboot it shows the windows logo and shuts back off. And opens up system restore.
Is there anything i can do? Is it svchost or something else?

My specs:

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 220 Processor, AMD64 Family 16 Model 6 Stepping 3
Processor Count: 2

can you get in to safe mode with networking? If you can, then run Malwarebytes quick scan and fix all it finds....also run these 2 fully working trials
a- Trojan Remover
b- HitMan Pro

Run them both till they run clean, and then you can uninstall them so you won't get nag screens
