This nasty fella gives constant crashes in your computer.  I thought it was an issue with hardware, like motherboard, cpu, video card and so on. 


Looking for ways to get rid of it.

if able to, upload iehighutil.exe to www.virustotal.com and test with 40+ malware scanners
when you have the result, post link to scan result here

It is a bitcoin miner also comes with a rootkit, so simply removing the files will not suffice! The rootkit typically associated is going by the name \"0Access\" or \"ZeroAccess\".
I had to run the Kaspersky TDSSKiller in order to kill the root of it. I would like Avast! to have killed or blocked it to begin with though.
