coordinator.exe no disk pop-up virus?

I have started getting a pop-up that says: coordinator.exe - no disk There is no disk in the drive.  Please insert a disk into drive \device\harddisk1\DR1." and it seems to stop the virus program from operating.  I can't find any way to get rid of it nor any information on it online.  I had Avast" and it indicated all was well. I switched to BitDefender and it wouldn't install until i managed to click the popup repeatedly off (it would re-appear immediately) and in between the new program managed to stop it.  But now that the new program is all installed, it has returned.  BitDefender has scanned all and reports no problems.  The pop-up is still there.  The buttons offered are Cancel (doesn't work) Try Again (doesn't work) and Continue (didn't try).

I found the solution myself.  After searching on nearly everything known to man I finally found the source - it was in a hidden file - appdata\local\zoominfoCEutility\2055\coordinator.exe.  I renamed the file and rebooted and voila! it was gone.  Then I looked up Zoominfo and it is something that appears to be legit - a program for sharing my business contacts.  I have doubts, though, as I have been getting spam-mail for at least 6 business contacts with only links in the body - usually to viagra or something, and it embarrasses the clients who send apologies eventually.  I wondered it so many former clients could be getting into some mailing list through me!  Too much coincidence!  Time will tell. Meanwhile, no more Zoominfo.  Thanks for your efforts team!
