Have you recently downloaded and installed Windows Defender?

MsMpEng.exe and MSASCui.exe seem to be associated with Windows Defender.

wdfmgr.exe is a processed used by the later versions of WMP.

HOWEVER!
If it is located in %System%, then it is added by W32/Agobot-TB worm.
For the latter see the BC StartupDatabase:
