Like 2 days ago when I login to windows after startup, my computer is really slow because I have like 14 processes that are named like gprv84n2n6k2g and stuff like that, but there is like 3 different ones. Can anyone help me get rid of these?

Sounds like a virus or something to me...

Glad you got it taken care of. FWIW, this site has some good information on a subset of some of the more common processes (good and bad ones).

You've gotta buy the full version of the software to get the full listing and updates.
