MediaAccK.exe is an advertising program by Windupdate. This process monitors your browsing habits and distributes the data back to the author's servers for analysis. This also prompts advertising popups. This program is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately.

It's a premium content dialer. Installs itself in c:\program file\media access. Also related to scrtkfg.exe. Check startup items with 'msconfig'. Also, try uninstalling 'Media Access' using add/remove programs in Control Panel
It is a nasty trojan/virus that is horrible to get rid of!

Best practices for resolving MediaAccK issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with MediaAccK. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command.
