Temp folder is packed

ok when i restart my computer and open my task manager there is over a hundred files under "processes" that all have random numbers like 351231243.exe, 1254252191.exe and so on. i havnt actually counted but there must be atleast 200. i took the time and end tasked them all but when i restarted again there seemed to be more. when i went to the file location it took me to the AppData > Local > Temp folder. what are these files and how can i get rid of them

Sounds like you have some malware on your computer which is replicating like mad. The random number.exes are basically copies or variants of the malware/virus trying to ensure you can't remove it or slowing down your machine with crap processes.

You currently have two options:

1) Wipe and reinstall - Some viruses/malware will screw up your system and sometimes it is better to just do a clean install to avoid the headaches.

2) Try and clean it - The reason this is number two is without identifying the root cause of the problem, you can try and download Malwarebyte's Anti-Mallware and Super Anti-Spyware from a clean computer, reboot your current computer into safe mode and try installing those two programs to see if they can clean it out. If it is a rootkit infection, it may be difficult to remove in general and in some cases, if you haven't set up a secondary administrator account on the system, you may still have some problems getting the infection off due to the account you are trying to it on is compromised to hell and will prevent you from cleaning it.
