I had this problem megabytes could not detect it on my w8 64 bit pro so i removed it via regedit by searching for WS-SUSTAINER 180. I don't know if it is worth mentioning but it was also able to turn on another PC on my network so i checked all my PCs to make sure it had not spreed generally i use Ad Blocker plus witch normally keeps that stuff at bay.
