Did you right click regedit and started as Administrator?
Did you check the location I gave you earlier?

Have you tried running Malwarebytes and deleting it while in safe mode? (without being connected to the net, in case it tries to "call for help".

Also, if this happened recently and you are able to do a system restore prior to the suspicious activity, then try doing that. Do not go to the 1st restore point though, as some malware embeds itself into that. Go the the second, preferably the 3rd restore point if possible...

Another program you may wish to try:

EDIT: I'm seeing multiple listings saying it may/may not be a virus. The following link (as well as others) identify it supposedly belonging to a program called Multimedia Fusion 2. Did you by any chance get these readings after you d/l ed a certain program?

Some sites report it as malware and others state that it is a part of the media center that is buggy.

here is the avast notification.

any idea?
Look at that Avast pop up: The Thread has been BLOCKED that's why it's not in your taskmanager. just follow the rest instructions I posted. Go in you registry, remove the call(s) and then go ahead and delete all those stdrt.exe in your Temp folder.
This worked perfectly. I did not try it before because i was looking for the exe in task manager.

Thank you very much.
