Is svchost running with a description of "winrscmde" good or bad? Is it spyware? Malwarebytes and windows security essensials report two trojans found, but they don't say that is winrscmde. I booted Microsoft Windows defender offline which used to be called microsoft system sweeper and it doesn't find anything.

It's not good. It is bad and a threat. I don't think this is the forum for getting specific removal advice (someone correct me if I'm wrong), you should check out google for some help on finding a forum that will analyze your logs and help you remove it.

Additionally, you should back up (if you haven't already) all vital data.
