Hi, may I jump in a moment?? This looks like a new piece of malware called Bootkit Whistler. This is a piece of malware that alters the Master Boot Record of your Harddisk. Once it's done that it can facilitate all kinds of malware, as in your case the two processes running from the System Restore directory.
To confirm this, do the following:
In case you don't have an archive extracter installed already:
Please download 7zip and install the program on your computer (we need this program in order to be able to unzip the tool that can delete Bootkit Whistler).
When 7zip is succesfully installed, please download bootkit_remover.rar and save the file to your desktop.
Right click on the file and select "extract/unzip here".
This will create two readme files and remover.exe on your desktop.
Double click on remover.exe; a command window will open. Please copy/paste the text under "MBR Status" and post that in your next repl
