I don’t know what this process is doing on my computer. I run Windows 7 Professional w/ all its updates running current non-free antivirus.
I only see it in Resource Monitor, where you can see the Network Service process connected to bitum.nnov.ru.
When my PC’s network traffic generating apps are idle, this process is using the most of all the idle processes using the network.

Does anyone recognize this?
The page source mentions a control port & a stream port:

When I google this page’s title, I see a number of other domains that host the same page.

Download a copy of tcpview from Sysinternals: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897437.aspx. It can show connected apps & destinations.
I would advice to use Wireshark to sniff the network traffic and see the nature of the traffic. You could upload your pcap file when your computer is idle here and we could take a look. From what I can see, that XHTML file references to an ActiveX control for Internet Explorer. I tried it on a Virtual Machine so if it is malicious I won’t infect my main computer and it shows an interface to connect to a DVR Recorder (a webcam that has its own hard drive to store the captures).
Something very fishy is going on here in my opinion. The first thing that comes to my mind is that someone is using you as a proxy to connect to this website, but I don’t know for sure.
