I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but that's the problem, I have no idea what it is. I recently found it while looking at the Task Manager earlier and found it's utilizing big amounts of memory. I've searched and can find nothing about this program, so I have no idea what it could possibly be. As an added bonus, when I try to end the process, it comes right back the moment it shuts down.

Does anyone know anything about it? Erm... Sorry if this is in the wrong forum and whatnot.

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Erm... The program isn't on the list, yet it's running. Oh joy, more confusion.
