hi there and welcome to the forums
windows key + r
Type in MSCONFIG
Go to startup.
See if you see anything suspicious that is starting up

NT Kernel & System is actually ntoskrnl.exe.
Quote:
ntoskrnl.exe is a critical process in the boot-up cycle of your computer although should never appear in WinTasks whilst under normal circumstances

run your anti virus scan for malware
