REMOVE IT - After decompiling the scripting and looking through the code. It is definitely malicious, and will eat through your computer's resources.

Avast marked it as suspicious. The location is C:\users\YourName\Documents\MSDCSC
My friend downloaded it as a trainer (stupid a-hole). I used regedit to enable task manager again then i deleted it in regedit, found it in appdata hidden in cookies

msdcsc.exe is a process that contain's a backdoor, The backdoor is to a program caled DarkCOmet Remote Adminstartion Tool made by aguy caled DarkCoderSc. DarkComet is a program that makes the user that has DarkComet can make a virus that is orginaly called msdcsc.exe and in regedit MicroUpdate. DC stands for: DarkComet/DarkCoder, SC is for DarkCoderSC and MS is for MicroSoft i think. DarkComet is used by Hacker's and if they are smart they would change the info to lik csrss.exe or svchost.exe to hide a little bit better. If you open a Backdoor.Win32.DarkKomet or a Fynloski trojan then the guy who created the Backdoor can control you're computer spy on you, look in your files, look what you doning, send fake errors an dMUCH MORE! So DON'T Open a MSDCSC.exe!! a pitcure:

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
