HELP! with svchost!!?

OK i saw in my processes svchost was running. so i decided to read about it and saw that it is a critical system file but most viruses disguise as it. Apparently it should only be in the windows system32 folder BUT i have found it in

C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Roaming and found manifest files for svchost

C:\Windows\winsxs\Manifests

The one in roaming sounds like a virus because it was created 2 days ago a 2:45am when i remeber getting a virus but my anti virus removed it. It was a dll. There are 11 svchost processes running that i saw in command prompt. The command was tasklist/SCV please help should i delete the one in roaming or not :/
