    Hi, nod32 give this alarm today during system update on 7:

    "14/12/2011 19:13:48 - Startup scanner - file - Operating memory » taskhost.exe(2328 ) - a variant of Win32/Spy.Zbot.ZR trojan - unable to clean user-PC\User."

    On internet Taskhost.exe seems to be a safe windows file. Is it a false positive?

    It means that malware was detected in the memory area allocated by taskhost.exe. I'd suggest contacting customer care and supplying them with a SysInspector for perusal.
