Question: what is scrim and almsfolk

I've been having this problem for a while now, everytime id start my MacBook Pro (13 inch early 2011, running OS X Yosemite) , the first window to pop up is "problem report for scrim", followed by "problem report for almsfolk"

I'd click reopen but the same pop ups would reappear. I think the failure to load whatever this is , is making the fan on my MacBook run really fast like wind turbines.

The process "launchd" has a CPU (on activity monitor) of around 73%,

They're not part of a Mac OS installation. I'd guess at ad/spy ware using random names in an effort to hide itself a bit.

The problem/crash reports will probably show file locations; or say, Etrecheck will make it easier, and often remove them for you.
