Right click on any 1 and select end process tree. Also you can do a system restore and check.

System restore was disabled, your advice only kills only one at the time (I can restart to make them gone, that is not the problem), the problem is that i can't install, for example Bioshock 2.

Hmmm...Open command prompt with run as admin.

Fire, sfc /scannow, once complete, restart and check.

If system restore is disabled it normally means a virus or something similar.

I would check for these just incase!
