A few days ago noticed my laptop (Win7) felt slower, so I checked the task manager, to disable unwanted processes, and noticed explorer.exe appeared 5 times in a row, and one of them was taking up at least 50% of CPU usage.
It sometimes goes away, but upon reboot pops back in, reducing the efficiency significantly.
From forums, I gathered it must be a virus, but little to no solutions were permanent.

This is the "threat" my BitDefender keeps finding (http://i.imgur.com/n6p9lmx.png)(http...om/BBPfjzw.png) when I run Full System Scans. Deleting it accomplishes nothing.

Any help would be appreciated

Turning off the internet access seems to slow down the issue, since the "virus" (don't know what to call it) stops taking up so much CPU, but the multiple processes remain and still occupy some RAM.
