Need help destroying Yontoo Desktop and affiliates

  1. Ok As of a few weeks now, I noticed that Yontoo kept showing up on my Task Manager, As of now it seems to pose no threat, I have Kaspersky installed all up to date, so I'd of assumed if it were dangerous in its activities it would be picked up straight away, this isn't the case and untill today I decided to leave it, I've gone through a few systematic approaches on attempting to get rid of it but with no luck, I even resorted to deleting its registries and yet it still remains.

    Hoping someone can direct me on how to get rid of this BS.

    Thanks in advance


    Windows 7 SP1 64 bit
    Kaspersky 6.0
