Angry processes

Hi everybody. First time posting here and I have a doubt. If you can help please reply.

Sometimes i get these processes WinAdCtl.exe and WinAdAlt.exe to run.. after i open the task manager they disappear... I close the task manager and i re-open it again and the suckers are there again, but will disappear again...

Any ideas what this is? They are a "SYSTEM" processes

You can see the process in a report on this link below (in the Process List section).

Any help? Thanks and sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this in.

Spyware. Use Spybot search and destroy to help get rid of them. Also check some of hte other threads. Warez has posted specific instructions on what to do.

Also i see you are running SP1. Have you tried to update to SP2 and maybe eliminate the problem?
