Looks like its a rogue program using your systems network hostname to cover itself up.

Also might want to try Process Explorer, it should give you more info. [LINK!]

Search for the file and upload it to virustotal.com and let it scan. If you got the file and it's viral i want to ask if i may get a copy.

looks like it, though it could be anything!

get prio http://www.prnwatch.com/prio.html
then you can just mouse over it in task manager and see where/what it is.

I agree with happy dude. Process Explorer will most likely give you the answer.

What I would do is search for the file on your hd, and then see if it has any details of where it's from, etc. Then I would just delete it. Have you installed anything big lately? If not, it probably is a virus you picked up somewhere.
