This showed up as a process in task manager attached to several modules. Never noticed it before today, and I would've as some of the modules used up to 500,000 k. Upon terminating the process, it would re-open immediately. The use of resources crashed my browser repeatedly. Had to do a system restore to get rid of it and block its reinstallation. No idea how it got past my security measures.
