Avast isn't alone in detecting on that IP:

Whilst svchost.exe is a system file it isn't so usual for it to connect to the internet, but has been on occasion used by another program (could be malicious) to avoid detection or obfuscate what is responsible for the connection.

So is there any way to fix it, I also noticed that it is not always svchost.exe but also some random programs I am using like chrome and game launchers. but always the same IP. how can I find what is causing this.
