Windows 7: Pehcnijlfx.exe

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

It's placed in C:\Users\pcname\AppData\LocalLow\Conduit\xbpkyzj\uzhrqtd.
This runs in 3-4 instances, per Task Manager. Can't kill - it regenerates. Brings web browsing to a crawl.
No ideas what else it does, Googling it gets no hits.
It has Google Chrome as the task manager Description.
Kaspersky rescue disk doesn't find it, nor does MSE. I didn't do a full C drive scan with Kaspersky because it takes an hour and I needed the PC.
Had my PC back in 5 minutes by restoring an image.
Probably plenty of crap like that out there. I was on "questionable" websites.
Second time I had it.

You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
See this tutorial on how to download and run Malwarebytes,
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free
Also use the Custom scan option not the Threat scan,

Please Do Not clean/ Delete or Remove Any detections before posting the scan results first before review especially Malwarebytes,
SAS is safe to remove anything it finds
This one is the longest up to 4 hours, the others are only about 45 minutes,
