I'm pretty sure there is a virus floating around.

That should be TeaTimer.
From Spybot-S&D Help:
The Resident TeaTimer is a tool of Spybot-S&D which perpetually monitors the processes called/initiated. It immediately detects known malicious processes wanting to start and terminates them giving you some options how to deal with this process in the future: You can set TeaTimer to:
be informed when the process tries to start again
automatically kill the process
or generally allow the process to runThere is also an option to delete the file associated with this process.
In addition, TeaTimer detects, when something wants to change some critical registry keys. TeaTimer can protect you against such changes again giving you an option: You can either Allow or Deny the change. As TeaTimer is always running in the background, it takes some resources of about 5 MB.
Which version do you have?
