In my task manager there is a prosses called zeioki.exe and it is using 30% of my cpu. I have reasons to believe it is a virus.
When i try to end the process a message comes up saying 'task manager has stopped working' and my only option is to close the task manager.
Is this a virus? and does anyone know how to get rid of it?
P.s I have windows 7.

Also, their is a autorun.inf virus on my usb and when i try to delete it, it says something like 'cannot delete as zeioki.exe is using it'.

Also, before all this, my virus protection (trend micro) asked me if I wanted to allow or block zeioki.exe from making changes to my computer, it said its publisher was microsoft so i allowed it and the security risk was stated as low. My virus protection said that the risk was that it could change my dll or dl or something like that i cant really remember. And now sometimes it says unknown publisher and other times microsoft is stated as the publisher.
