I managed to gain this awhile ago in my running processes in task manager, however I'm pretty sure I got rid of it but am wondering if there are any paticular files I may have missed in the cleaning process. I know this process used to be used by a Windows tool for the update installer however it is now a really really bad thing. Just wondering what I should be looking for as far as files, registry entries, or processes that I may have missed.
