When I boot now mshta.exe starts propagating in task manager. It generally runs around 18,000k but I have seen it as high as 32,000k. I can kill it in task manager but it will come back. If I leave my PC up for a few hours there will be 30-40 instances of mshta.exe in task manager. I have run Mcafee (subscription), Spybot S&D, MBAM but "Nothing" is found.
