What is fsgknxktm.exe under Processes in Task Manager?

Dell OPTIPLEX 745

Specs: Windows 7, 2.128 GHz / 3061 MB
This program apparently was some anti-virus program I had never downloaded in my life. (As I use AVG) I looked at task manager and saw "fsgknxktm.exe" and sought to close it asap.

Can't remember the full detail of the other "anti-virus".

Anyone have a clue what this is?

This feels like its a fake name, many viri use random charactors to mask what is going on. I would use malwarebytes free to do a full scan, a lot of times fake antivirus's are involved with this kind of nameing. If you see the name of the fake, there is often a specific removal guide involved. If it is one of these I would run rkill, tdskiller, and then malwarebytes all from safe mode.

unfortunatly, just deleating it will probably not fix the whole issue. because there are more than likely multiple processes associated.
