New PC acting weird, process named unit.exe takes up most of the memory

  1. So, hello everyone! I seem to have this new problem with this PC. It's a Toshiba, it has Windows 7, 4GB RAM, overall a good one, Ever since last week, it has started to run really, really slow and sluggish. It takes up a lot of time to login, programs open up slowly, and this particular process named "unit.exe" takes up around 1GB of the memory. 900mb to be exact. I can close it and the computer is lightning fast, but everytime I turn it on it's the same story. I have ESET Smart Security 8 as my AV and Comodo as my Firewall. Neither of them detect anything related to unit.exe. Any help please? Thanks in advance!
