right, so i found out a little more about my problem
i was just nosing around my running processes, and i noticed a LARGE amount of .exe's that i haven't noticed before. i ran a system inspect by eset and found the root files for these weird programs. i killed the .exe and deleted them as well, but they started popping up again in a different place, in a different folder. sidenote: they all had different names, but were convincingly in important program folders.
before this, i rebooted my pc and found this program hogging all my CPU, zmisua.exe with Apex in the description bar (its located in the Windows folder). i did a short search for this file, and it came up absolutely blank in google, which is very, very strange.
running windows 7, just FYI
[EDIT]also, whenever i start up my computer, there's a popup that says that it could not start up edexizodul.dll which i also looked up and returned nothing. THIS dll i found with ESET after it labeled it as a possible trojan thing. on top of this, microsoft security center can't start. SOUNDS LIKE FUN
