SnakeEyes (King Cobra | Undead Quadkings) windows virus or not.

Good day,

After booting up my computer it is hanging. When i open task manager i see Project 1 running and when i go to process i found SnakeEyes running. So i decided to end it. To check where do this SnakeEyes came from and why it running on my computer every time i boot up, i run msconfig command and i see it is on start up. To check where do this SnakeEyes located. I found out that SnakeEyes is located in all user start up folder. I deleted this file but after a second it will be visible again. I already run Avira antivirus but nothing is detected.

Thanks in advance.

That's one I've never heard of, and a web search does not help. However, the behavior you describe does sound malicious.

What does msconfig say about the location of this bad boy?

Take a look in Add/Remove Programs (or whatever MS is calling it this week) and see what you can find. It might also be useful to download malwarebytes, install and update it, then run a scan.
