If you have enterprise level of the Microsoft operating system then you can throttle the executable back to 50% of CPU using the OS.

Unplug the network from this server, turn you firewall to block everything until you can regain control of your network.

How can I delete this software?
Hi nuberun

Find the file sqlck.exe using the search function from explorer and delete it.  Symantec's Norton Antivirus will clean this file from your system.
