pabiyhf.exe virus?

Does anyone know anything about this exe? It's in my app roaming file, when I delete it, it reappears and is eating resources and reaching out to IP addresses.

Attached is a screen shot of what its doing to my system, any help would be great.

This ^ is really poor advice!

Please follow centaurs suggestion. In addition, you may also seek opinion by uploading the file to dedicated online virus scanners. Use this tutorial to help you with that:

So I think I figured it out. I believe the exe above was tied to either Windows Defender or McAfee. I recently downloaded both in response to information from my ISP and sluggish performance from this pc. After uninstalling both and switching to Norton, the pabiyhf.exe disappeared or was stopped by Norton. Now I have cotuh.exe doing similar tasks yet when I shut down Norton, the cotuh.exe ends and doesn't start until I restart Norton. So its either part of Norton or a virus that only runs when Norton is on. Now I'm trying to figure out what igheh.exe is for and what Notekope is in my roaming apps data.
