hmm lets see
there are a couple of ways to get rid of processes
first of all you need to figure where this little sucker is hiding
click start and then run
type "services.msc" in run
find the process in which you described and then right click on it
then click propreties and you should see something for
Path to executable.
if it displays it
try and delete it. if deleting it does not work.

then do the following
open task manager and go to the processes section
and delete the process if it will not let you do that then we need to to take a more unique approach

here is a program called file assassin, it should work for you're situation if none of the others work

Once you've found the file, submit it to this online virus scanner - http://www.virustotal.com

If it says the file is malicious, follow the instructions here: http://www.techsupportforum.com/f50/...lp-305963.html

Then start a new thread and post the requested log files in the Virus/Trojans/Spyware forum where an analyst will help you as soon as possible.
