Not a windows expert, but have you tried running an independent scan, such as
using Panda Software's ActiveScan? 

BTW, a Google search on sndman.exe sees to indicate that it is hacker-installed
spyware -- maybe a keystroke logger. Most of the pages are in languages other 
than English and I am not sure how accurate the translations are.

Do you have a copy of the program that someone in this group could analyze?
