I need help I dentifying a program I found in my computer. I have been looking around this site for a while trying to figure this thing out, but now just need to now quickly what it is. McAfee and Microsoft both told me it sounds like a virus, but it doesn't get picked up as such.
It started like this- I found it listed in the trask manager and don't recall ever seeing it there before. It showed up right after I downloaded docs using emule and aquired a trojan. The trojan is gone. At first, I could shut it off and I t would stay off, but now it will just turn right back on. It also shutts off whan A McAfee scan is in progress. Please note that I can't seem to find it listed anyplace else and so I guess I am confused.
This Thing is listed as CIDGlobalLight.exe.
What is it and do I need to lose it? Also How?
Thanks to all who help.

(Program description copied/pasted from technibble.com's website):
Rkill is a small, freeware and portable tool designed to terminate active malware processes allowing you to use other removal tools. Rkill is made by a Microsoft MVP “Lawrence Abrams” and is available in 4 different extensions. An .EXE, .COM, .SCR and a .PIF file.
The reason why Rkill comes in 4 different versions is because some malware will block .EXE files in an attempt to prevent you from running other malware removal tools, so this gets around that problem.

Then, immediately after running Rkill, scan with Malwarebytes':
