I have another computer where this program is running in the back ground and the CPU is running at 100%, i cant turn it off as the PC shuts down. I noticed it today after surfing yesterday. My AV, adware and spybot dont pick up anything.

Im running XP home, any ideas what it is and how to stop it.

Could still be a virus. IS your AV up to date?Done a scan recently?

Sorry, I posted a "quick link". Here's the official explanation click here

Have you had a look in Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) to see what's running?
