Possible RAT? unknown/disabled programs still shows running in task mgr, and in BitD firewall

A lot of things are just strange, remote access disabled yet it is still running and i "dont have permission" to stop it ... "service cannot accept control messgae at this time" a ton of SVC host proccesses from services like "remote procedure call" "remote access connections" etc, soo many, especially strange programs running in BitD firewall, happy to provide a screenshot, ill put a few here if requested,


i have heard that sometimes people can use smart tv's to covertly gain access to your PC, iexcept in the case of 2 cell phones i try to use ethernet connections instead of wireless, and i do have  no log VPN service,,, in the process of hooking it up to my modem instead of each device.


as far as the "trovi virus" i've quarantine it so many time and it just seems to pop back up, i also had to restore the copmuter and for some unknown reason,  Advanced SystemCare was on there, which i was pretty sure i haven't downloaded on this PC, but did on another older PC i just found and was trying to fix up.  ill use  a rootkit killer, then jrt, adwclean, and mbam (paid addition) just sometimes Trovi still shows up.

thank you for you time!
