What is this: Koadrecckud?

I found this directory in my users\ken\AppData\LocalLow\Microsoft directory today. There is an EXE running with about a dozen instances of Vvsmmqswym.exe which has a description of Google Chrome. I didn't install Chrome and can't find it installed. I tried to Google it but nothing shows up.

You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
See this tutorial on how to download and run Malwarebytes,
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/338716-malwarebytes-anti-malware-free.html
Also use the Custom scan option not the Threat scan,

Please Do Not clean/ Delete or Remove Any detections before posting the scan results first before review especially Malwarebytes,

Had a similar issue last week. Browser highjack. Manually deleted things and then ran MSERT which found the responsible trojan. See this thread.
