Rundll32 problem

Hi, two days ago i started to get this problem. When i try to run some game the cursor will start rotating nonstop and my laptop become extremely slow. When i check task manager i see the processes is higher than usual ( 100 process when i open certain software, 75 process when before i open any software). When i browse the processes, i saw most of them is rundll32.exe ( 20 process). I try to scan using mse but it shows nothing. I try to open MBAM but it cant open even in chameleon mode. I run sfc/scannow in safe mode but it fail at verification.
