I am an idiot. I downloaded a file from an email under the impression that it was clean. My Anti-virus (AVG free) said it was fine. I double click the file and a split second later I notice the extension. It was an .exe (application) file and I was thinking I was opening a video. I screwed up royally. I opened this strange file in Notepad and I got only a few clear un-encrypted words. It had a bunch of stuff about accounts, world of warcraft, battle.net. I have the file saved as a notepad doc if you wish to see it. I don't want to copy and paste the text; all be it encrypted.

Basically, I want to know what this file is, is doing to my pc, and how to stop / kill it now. I am really uncomfortable about this file. Your help is much appreciated.

P.S. I decided to post the code against my better judgment. I am sorry if this is just worthless to you guys.
