Do you have an internet or multimedia keyboard?  Perhaps you either have one now, or removed the software for one recently.  It looks like a driver for a multimedia/internet keyboad to me.  I'm not sure though becuase it's looking for Telus software as well.

Run Adaware and see if it helps.

After looking around a bit it appears that you have the WorldSearch Trojan.  You definitely need to get rid of it.  Here is a forum thread with a bit more info.  http://www.mistered.us/wwwboard/messages/7855.shtml

Geez, it helps if I could read.  I thought it said "Telus" not "Telnet".  Thanks for the heads up and the reading lesson . . .
