Personally if i am managing a program allowed list I would opt for system safety monitor. The free version will allow you to only allow a specific set of programs and will detect when their signatures change. Bit noisy at first, but gives addtional piece of mind. These programs are normally termed as HIPS (host intrusion prevention system), the idea is to never let anything bad run in the first place.

I normally don't recommend this to the average bear as it does have a bit of a administrative overhead at first, but since you are looking at blocking stuff I believe this is the way to go

Barring that, is there other programme to use to clean what adaware and spybot SD missed (preferably free as software price in Malaysia are highly ridiculous) ? I used BitDefender free edition as my AV.
With start itself do you mean it starts on startup? If so go to:
Run, typ: msconfig. Check Startup and Services tab, and disable that process there.

^ Nope.. it wasn't running initially when window started.

@ greymoon, thanks for the link I'll see if it solves my problem later when I have time.

"Rule cake program.exe" seems like a pretty questionable name for a process. If you know it's not something you installed, and not something that should be running, you might want to track down where it is and delete the file manually.

I should add a plug in for GRC (Gibson Research Corporation). Have a look at Gibson's homepage - http://www.grc.com/default.htm - and go through his security information. Gibson is an expert on network security and provides explanations on security and allows you to see if your network is secure from outside access.

Just my personal opinion, but I don't really like Gibson's advice*.

Personally I hang about Wilders or CastleCops for my Windows security tips.

* Not going to jump on the Gibson bashing train so I'll put it down to personal taste. Always the best thing to do is to get as much info as possible and then make up your own mind

If it is spyware then deleting the file might not get rid of it. Best thing to do is to run an anti-spyware program like what already has been mentioned. I did a search for the exe and couldn't find anything useful

If the programs detect and delete it, but it keeps coming back I would advise starting up another thread and going into more details about how to remove malware (aka *beep* *beep* *beep* ware)

Go to run. Type in MSconfig. Go to startup and uncheck all the programs that you don't want to run at startup.
Also, go to start menu > all programs > startup and if there's anything in that folder that you don't want starting up at startup, delete it.

Though be careful, because removing certain things from startup could cause Windows to not be able to boot properly. So make sure you know what processes you're killing.

EDIT: Whoops, I didn't see that someone already gave this tip. Sorry bout that.

Also, I've found that just typing in the process name into Google will give you some pretty decent results regarding security.
