There are a few things that you could try...

Use tools like process hacker, what's running, capture bat and regshot ...
Process explorer and process monitor can tell you what path and device
files are being used. Also look at the

(HKLM\currentversion\microsoft\windows\software\run) key in the registry
... most malicious program want to stay resident after a reboot... You can
use a tool called autoruns at well.

It looks like you may have a Kernel mode root kit. There is only so far
that those tools will take you .. To complete your process you are going
to have to dump the executable to a unaffected machine and perform more
behavioral analysis follow by code and memory forensics.

Hope that helps
