So every single time i start my computer, everything is fine for about 2 minutes and then my RAM/CPU usage goes through the roof. Apparently these 2 processes are infinitely creating more of these process and my computer just basically freezes up. Also, I can't seem to make a connection to my router (using an ethernet connected to WiFi repeater).
I've done some slight research and nothing has really been made of it. Can anyone provide some info? Almost forgot to mention, I tried to run a malewarebytes scan but I couldn't get it finished in time but nothing was found in the ~2500 files it searched before it went to shit.
Here is a pic if the processes (sorry for a phone pic, I wouldn't be able to upload if I had taken a screenie):

can you right click and open file location to see where the processes are?
looks like a virus.
the files should be in C:\Windows\System32
