What's the full length of it, im guessing it's spyware.

I would check the registery to see if it's trying to be run from their, and stop it from trying to be ran,

go to start, run and type msconfig

remove everything in the list except for your antivirus (if you have any)

then go to add/remove programs in control panel, and remove ".net framework"

Its spyware, usually installed by RealOne, AudioGalaxy, KaZaA, iMesh, Grokster, BearShare, Babylon and Radlight. Found this just by googling. This link is for a program that will kill it for you:
