Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.  The machine has become extremely slow.  Task manager reports between 85-100% CPU usage.  There are multiple processes for qkibqavgmg.exe.  If I kill it others pop up.  I'm running RogueKiller and Malwarebytes now.  A quick Google for qkibqavgmg.exe and nothing is returned.  Please help.  Thanks in advance.

When did the program appear?  Could you restore to a date before?  If not, would saving your important data and files and performing a reinstall too much of a problem? The reward would be a clean computer.

Problem started early yesterday.  I will try a system restore.  A reload is last restort.  Lots of work related programs, settings and configurations to restore.

You must reboot into safe mode and run as many scans as you can.

Run RogueKiller and Malwarebytes again as well as your standard AV.
Also get a trial run of HitmanPro

There are also well worth running ....
TDS Killer http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tdsskiller/
SuperAntiSpyware www.superantispyware.com

When you have all this extra software installed, make sure that they are not updating themselves unless you decide to do a manual update ..... and be careful what you click on when installing ANYTHING ..... always choose "custom install" never the "recommended" one.

Looks like Roguekiller and Malwarebytes combined with SafeMode got it.  What was the r ogue process in the image?  I Googled it and could find nothing.
