Which anti virus do you have?
And download MalwareBytes to kill it (https://www.malwarebytes.org/), it is malicious according to the links that the friendly person above posted.

Right click it in the 'Processes' -tab of task manager, then select 'Open File Location'. After what is the folder that comes up? Is it in Program Files or Program Files (x86)? If it is, just end the process in task manager and then delete the entire folder it was in.

And if it doesn't let you delete the folder, remember the folder's location (Write it down on something like a post it note), and boot into Safe Mode, usually by mashing the F8 key on startup and trying to delete the folder there, then restart and you should be good.

Delete it, the antivirus won't remove anything important.
