I wasn't able to work out what the catalyst for this was, but from a couple of days ago, there are multiple (20+) extra processes running that I haven't asked to start. They all seem to be related to that programs "service", eg:
LogiRegistryService.exe - I have Logitech keyboard software, but the only thing that normally runs is Lcore.exe
PnkBstrA.exe - I know this is to do with gaming, but it normally doesn't run, or maybe just runs when game running
updater.exe - this is for PopcornTime, which I have never used since installing 2 months ago, and this file has never ran before
sqlwriter.exe, nvSCPAPISvr.exe, lsm.exe.......etc etc etc
There are also many more like this.
Also, there are approximately double the usual amount of svchost.exe files running.
I keep an eye on running processes all the time with Task Manager, and these have all just started running on every startup, just recently. None of them are in the startup folder, or in the Startup tab of System Configuration, all scan clean with AV.
I have done a full system scan with latest Avira Antivirus, Malware Bytes, and CCleaner.
Anyone come across this?
