Download and install Spybot, press Search and Destroy, Check For Problems (takes about 25 minutes), Fix Selected Problems, press the Immunize tab, press Immunize. Done.

If you're running Vista, it might prompt you to use Elevated Administrator privileges to fully immunize, in which case you go to Control Panel, User Accounts, Turn of User Access Control, and reboot, and do the Spybot process again. But hopefully you won't have to, although it is quite painless, just a bit of a pain waiting another 25 minutes, is all..

Now, delete the Extra Antivirus folder from Program Files.
Now you'll have to clean up the files it has spread about your computer using ncleaner. Install it, Clean System, Clean Now, and then go back into Clean System and do the Registry Clean Now. Just click Yes on every prompt.
Now your computer will be free of all spyware, cookies and you will have gained a lot of space too!
Spybot and nCleaner are the 2 programs I swear by, and I would advise you to use only these programs alongside your normal antivirus program (I recommend Avast for that).
These programs are all free and clean. 90% of all the 'registry optimizers' and 'virus scanner' programs are riddled with malware, don't download them!

Let me know how you get on, mate..

    Oh one more thing, every time Spybot warns you that a change is being made to your computer, allow the change, it is just a very secure spywall, with frequent prompts, so don't feel intimidated by it, like some new users to it do..

process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool". It is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.
