So, last night after I woke my computer up from sleep, I noticed that my cursor was stuck in the loading animation, so I poked around an pinpointed the problem to a process called "ndar32.exe" I ended the process tree and that solved the problem. However, this morning when I booted up my pc it happened again and after looking around I found ndar32 in my local temp files, so I deleted it. A few seconds after I deleted it, it popped back up again.
This program just kind of appeared. From what I could tell, there was no trace of it before I put my pc to sleep. I did some internet research and could only find one post on avast's forums in which they told the guy to upload the file to virus total, metascan, and jotti. Here are the logs if you want to look at them:
It seems that not many virus scanners have deemed it malicious.
