trumpauto.exe

I would:

Use Taskmanager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) to end these running processes if you can (or use Process Explorer)

trumpauto.exe

so it does NOT run at startup anymore.

Can you find the PATH of it either in C:\Windows\system or C:\Windows\System 32 ??

Go here and let it scan:

Pls. let us know what was found.

found source of trumpauto.exe

trumpauto.exe appears to be a product of trumpion electronics. Glancing at their page, I saw in their product line a USB flash drive. This flash drive is identical (save for the painted logo) that a co-worker brought by the other day. I believe that the software is installed upon mounting the flash drive.

I do not know what it does, but I have disabled it from starting, by removing it from the registry.

I can't imagine it does anything useful.
