Task Manager: iexplorer.exe *32, chrome.exe *32 and many others

  1. I'm having huge trouble with this at first it starte dout just showing iexplorer.exe *32 and i thought nothing of it as it was lagging my computer to the extreme cpu usage was hitting 100% and ram was hitting 80% (8gbs of ram)

    I turned my computer off a few times by holding down my poewr button for 6 seconds and this just improved it until i logged in and about an hour into use it would start again, when i opened up taskmanager to check what it was i noticed that regular chrome.exe didnt have the "*" so alarm bells rang and i tried ending all of thier process trees and setting them to low priority while i looked for a solution.

    I have found this forum read through the whole 5 step guide downloaded all that i need except for the DDS by sUBs which just kept going to a blank page without a dl.

    im currently running scans now and they're taking forever, im guessing this is somesort of trojan, even though i have downloaded nothing harmful i would just like to get rid of this and would love it if someone could help me out.

    My avast scan is currently at 59% and im afraid i'm going to have to stop it and carry it on in the morning and my malware bytes has detected 1 threat while avast has detected 3.

    If anyone out there is willing to help this poor lad out then please do, my last computer was trashed by a scumbag repair man when i took it to him, he did nothing but erase everything from it and reinstall windows and then the problem persisted some how lol.

    TL;DR:
    Some sort of trojan in my rootkit or some XXXX (Language deleted) taskmanager showing various programs with "*32" at the end of them and need someone to help pl0xx

    I'll be glad to help you after I see the logs.

    Please explain more clearly the problem with DDS. . It would be best if you don't scan with Avast while I'm helping you.
