So I've been having some problems lately with pop ups and things trying to be setup on my PC, a few days ago this "AF.exe" thing would start up every so often and ask for my permission for something, I always hit no of course, then I ran some scans on my computer with multiple programs, (Avast, Ad-Aware) and I thought they had found and fixed it. Now today I started up my PC and about 10mins after bootup about 10 "Afirst.exe" processes started, I can't stop any of them, I ran some more scans and nothing happened.

 

I'm running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan right now, hoping it will give me a different result, would appreciate if someone could help me out here.
