    by:zvitam is a spyware as  probably all other processes trying to access the internet.

    I suggest you download & install Microsoft Anti-Spyware (although its a beta)

    Scan your system with it, and it will probably elinte all thse strange processes.

    You may be able to remove abetterinternet from the add/remove programs before using microsoft anti-spyware.

    If you don't have an update anti-virus software I suggest you get one too.

    Whilst your at it I would suggest getting spy sweeper :

    and ad aware :

    AVG Free Edition :

    Main Website for Avg just in case you need the main site:

    Get hijackthis :

    And run that and scan and save the  log and analyse it at the same site !

    I would also suggest that you run the anti spyware and anti virus scans in safe mode !

    Then do an online virus scan when you get back into normal mode after removing any thing that is found by the above :

    I hope this helps :)

    Also keep zone alarm running and block those processes so they dont have access to the internet :) if you need to :)

    i suggest running all these, prefereably in safe mode : - certainly Spybot, Adaware and housecall.

         Spybot :
         adaware :                                                                      online scan for trojans                                            download                                         check the log

    For the future, you may use antispyware from MS to prevent such intrusions :

    There is a split points at the bottom before you accept answers and you can get it re opened if you want. But it doesnt really matter, as long as you got it sorted out and it works thats all that matters !!

    Just glad I could help :)
