    I'd end the process and delete the file if I was you.

    This forum and "Misc Software & Utilities" are full of this kind of topics (it's quite clear that amount of spyware has skyrocketed within the past year), so the answer is pretty much the same: Download and run Ad-aware, Spybot and HijackThis, do a virus scan.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I agree 100% with what Mict says.

    You may want to take a look at this tread by RBS it should help you.

    How to remove begin2search / coolwebsearch

    It gets rid of lots of nasties from your system not just the two mentioned in the title.
