My son has picked up what appears to be a virus. It is an .exe file named "fikrwndx", and it is attached to Google Chrome. I can find no reference to this virus anywhere.
The symptoms are a series of audio ads for various products that recycles about every 5 minutes, and the appearance of the file in the Task Manager under the Processes tab. It has the Chrome icon, and appears multiple times (10-15 times) in the TM window. 
It also appears to try an protect itself by removing access to the add/remove programs controls while running in standard operating mode (although I did finally get access in Safe Mode). While there I removed Google Chrome, but the icon still appears in the TM window.
My son has a Toshiba Satellite using Windows 7 Home Premium.
