sounds as if you have been runnning unprotected for some time, try cc cleaner (available from this sites downloads section) and get yourself spyware blaster from the same source when you are clear.

have you tried running again in safe mode with system restore disabled? might work.

Sounds like mit could be Spyaxe/Spyfalcon or similar.

First check that it isn't Windows Messenger service by running Shoot the Messenger click here

Check for Spyaxe/Spyfalcon click here
