Are you sure it's SVOHOST & not SVCHOST?

Probably an old entry that wasn't deleted when you removed something, or the program would simply run, and you wouldn't know about it.

Try going into your registry (Start->Run->Regedit) and press F3 to search for the entry.

It will probably be somewhere under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, and you might be able to figure out what it is by looking at the complete path.
(company names, program names, etc.)

Delete the entry if you want to, just remember to take a backup of the registry first.
