have you run an antivirus scan and a spyware scan, if not do so and see what comes back.
Now installed Microsoft Security Essencials on my Tower with Windows Home Premium 32bit and Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop with Windows Home Premium 64bit

niteaim.exe - Added by the W32.Opanki.B backdoor/worm.

Update and, as thedon57 suggested, run your Antivirus.
Run it in Safe Mode:

If that doesn't help, run these online scans:

Here's Symantec's removal directions:
