idlemonitor.exe virus removal help

Hi everyone,


I have this idlemonitor.exe on my PC. After the computer is idle for a minute it activates itself and slows down everything badly. I can shot it down in taskmanager, I even find and deleted the .exe (several copies of it in random named directories). I couldn't find the source of the infection though, it appears again and again.

Any idea how to remove it?

I see multiple articles in the net about it but this one seems closer to the way of cleaning that:

Also I always advise to run Autoruns and McAfee GetSusp so you can verify that the machine does not show any malicious activity.
