I seem to have been infected by a malware called RocketTab. Using up excessive RAM and slowing things down. Here's a Malwarebytes scan. I don't know what action to take, because the last time I quarantined stuff off a scan my laptop had big problems starting up again. :/ Here's the log below. 


Thanks for the help guys.
