There doesn't appear to be any process under that name, I clicked show all system processes, and still no. Any other possibilities?
If anything, I'd just like to be able to factory-settings my computer, but it says something has made it un-able to do so.

This subject can be closed, I moved on from this issue and posted a new thread on the Factory restore issue under the restore forums tab roughly 20 minutes ago. However, for closures sake on your part I can post the information it gives when attempting to Restore factory settings:

A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source.
If you have a Windows installation disc, insert the disc and restart your computer. Click "Repair your computer," and then choose a recovery tool.
Otherwise, to start windows so you can investigate further, press the ENTER key to display the boot menu, press F8 for Advanced Boot Options, and select last known good. If you understand why the digital signature cannot be verified and want to start Windows without this file, temporarily disable driver signature enforcement.

status: 0xc0000428

Info: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file.

I'm a long-time Acronis guy and just set-up a new W7HP computer for my sister.

But it only makes one backup...
