Hi, sorry if this is the wrong place but i'm new here. I have been noticing some weird programs running through my task manager lately, namely two searchprotocolhost.exe, trustedinstaller.exe running at random times and not turning off and a few others. I was hoping that someone would be able to help guide me through the process to do the appropriate scans? I use windows 7(Latest updates and SPs installed) with Avast Antivirus and MalwareBytes Anti Malware as backup. Any help would be greatly appreciated, since I'm getting a bit concerned.
