Consent.exe is part of Windows Vista - it's the User Access Control (UAC) executable.
There is a known malware version of this executable. Do a search on your hard drive (within Windows Vista, obviously) for all consent.exe files - make sure you include hidden and system files in the search criteria.
Once the search has completed, right-click on each file and check the file properties.
There is a MalWare version of Consent.exe
Right Click ALL of the ones you find and look for
Microsoft details in Properties
If you find a consent.exe anywhere else in the search results, I'd delete that file. Run a thorough anti-virus scan of the harddrive. I'd also download spybot and run it as well as downloading Ad-Aware from Lavasoft and using it to scan as well.
Spybot and Ad-Aware can find different spyware/malware, which is why I recommend running both products.
Once you've done all that, reboot the system. That should fix the problem.
