    They will work, but any updates in Facebook or mail or anything won't get updated until you show them in the foreground. At background those apps are in suspended state like in Windows 8.1. See my Win 10 screenshot to know what I mean:

    Yes, they do what they say on the tin: host apps running in the background.

    Go to: Settings->Privacy->Background Apps and turn all that nasty crap off.

    Restart your PC and see if the situation has improved.

    If not then something else is running in the background.
    Well, I've disabled everything there is to disable and these two processes are still showing up. I really don't think there's anything else I can do, save for deleting the two files.

    If you are still having a problem you might try ESET online scanner. I solved high memory usage by finding a virus that no other scanner found.

    Go to Settings, Update & security, Windows Update, Advanced options,
    Choose how updates are delivered, Updates from more than one place.

    Turn the switch OFF.

    Now your laptop won't be revving the CPU to share updates in the background with other computers.
    jh.

    Had this odd ball process running on my laptop to. Seems kind of shady and I don't want it running period. The quoted information from above worked to stop it.

    You can also take ownership of the System32 directory using the security tab found in the folders properties dialog window. In there have your account name become the owner then close and reopen the properties window. From there you just edit the groups and give your account (now the owner of System32) full access. Then you can show the files extension and rename the .exe part to something like .off

    I did that before trying the fix mentioned on the forum here, taking ownership worked and Windows seems unaffected by the change to the file name or the reworked ownership of the System32 directory. Just an alternative if the other methods don't seem to affect it. Don't forget you can find any running processes location in the file system by right clicking the process and choosing the option to open the files location.

    With the switch set to OFF your laptop will still get updates, it just won't share them with anyone else.
    Read what OP said, and in turn stop getting people to turn off Windows features that you don't like for nothing.

    If I turn "all that nasty crap" off, will apps still be useable, update and the like when I use them? I don't need these apps working in the background, but I want them to work as usual when used.
    When used, they'll work just fine. It's only when not used that they might exhibit odd behaviour.
