While I do my normal 'Routine' of gaming and surfing the web, I've accumulated SOMETHING on my pc that will randomly place files in my temp folder and open them. They only take about 7,000 kb of ram/bandwidth/whatever it is that the task manager says the process is taking up. But here's the catch -

They essentially are indefinably opening in the background of everything I do. The only thing I have to trace off of them is a console that will open up briefly and then close, so fast that I can't actually see what the console types and where, but it's probably the source of all of this.

Oddly, it creates the .exe file in c:\windows\temp then runs it. But I don't know what the source is, and it's 100% safe according to my antivirus, my only problem is they take up memory or whatever and it lags my games and slows the computer down generally...

 

It's also important to note that I can't end these processes through the normal process list, I have to click 'show processes from all users' so obviously they require an admin to delete them.

 

Here's a picture of them.

 

They also have random names, so I have no real way to 'look them up'.

For the curious - No, deleting them doesn't fix it.

can you open command prompt as an admin, navigate to the directory the file is in and delete the file through cmd (I recommend doing this in safe mode as the file will be in use in normal mode)

 

Edit- can you download process explorer (by sysinternals) and see where the file is running from

Regarding the location of the file I would suspect that your computer is infected.
