My Microsoft Office kept adding me for a product key so my friend downloaded this torrent that had a ton of Office product keys in it. After she downloaded it I got a bunch of malware, and now I notice that there are a few processes that are running that I've never seen before. They are efw.exe *32 (listed twice on task manager, one is using over 410k memory and the other 4k) and ewi.exe *32. In the task manager their description is 'Daniels'.
I just wanted to know if these are things I should be getting rid of (not sure how I'd go about that, either), or processes that shold be running. Thanks!
