This should give you some clues:

With luck it will be in Control Panel.

Otherwise this freebie should uninstall it:

Thanks Derek,
Iobit seemed to do the trick. I was able to find nmsrvc.exe listed in the task manager on my computer where I was able to end the process, but I had to do that every time I turned on my computer. It wasn't showing up in my control panel as Pure Networks or nmsrvc.exe so I could uninstall it. I found it in iobit after hunting around in some of their secondary listings and I uninstalled it.
This is a bad program. I think it downloaded with the program for my router. It kept causing my computer to freeze and especially made it impossible to run youtube and the like. It would have ruined my computer for sure. At one point the computer froze and started making a loud screeching noise. The last time I heard that noise was when something caused my harddrive to crash and burn. So thank you.

Here are the next 2 steps, there will be more steps needed, after I see the results of these logs.

Run them in this order.

Step 1: Run AdwCleaner

Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click Scan
In the results tabs, uncheck anything you don't want to remove.
Click on Cleaning.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please Copy & Paste the contents of that logfile with your next answer.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

Stick with Johnw and get your computer cleaned up - if things start coming back it 's a bad sign.

It looks like nmsrvc.exe is gone. I think it was uninstalled the first time I ran iobit, but it didn't remove it from the list of processes running. The second time I tried to remove it iobit said there wasn't any program associated with what was running in processes and then it got rid of that too.
I will also follow Johnw's suggestion. I ran adwcleaner and I've yet to run JRT. Hopefully that will help things run more quickly.

I think John might have been called away. I would suggest you run this too:

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
Download the free version.
Install and Run the program but before doing its Scan go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a checkmark in "Scan for rootkits". Quarantine anything it finds.

Please copy/paste the log on here.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hey John, Don't think I'll need to post the results to adwcleaner or JRT programs. I've got everything working.
I'm so proud of myself. I got rid of nmsrvc.exe and I even figured out why my computer was freezing. It was freezing whenever I went to one of those sites that used ajax.googleapis or wordpress. I changed the DNS connectivity for the IPv4 to the google DNS server ( and I don't even have any idea what that stuff is). It's seems to be working great. Just hope I haven't opened my computer to any malware.
