What is starthelp.exe?

It tries to load when I boot/re-boot Windows 7.

    This appears to be a new and very malicious virus for which I have not yet been able to find a fix. On my computer it's located at this path: c:Program Files(x86)privoxystarthelp.exe but if you delete it, you will not be able to access the Internet from any browser. If you don't delete it, you will be inundated with popups every time you try to search (offering you fake web sites on which to find what you're looking for) and it will gradually slow your computer to a crawl. Come on all you geeks out there! HELP!

Can you answer this question?
