Rkill Processes to terminate

A client was infected by PUPs.  I can't get a clean rkill log.  Everything is good but it says -

Checking for processes to terminate:

 * C:\windows\SysWOW64\PSIService.exe (PID: 2368) [WD-HEUR]
 * C:\windows\system32\ThpSrv.exe (PID: 3000) [WD-HEUR]
 * C:\Windows\System32\ThpSrv.exe (PID: 4528) [WD-HEUR]

Any concern or correction?
Thanks,
Mags

All the three processes seem to be legitimate.

No harm if you terminate these processes, however.

Thanks...what does the "PID: #" and "WD-HEUR" mean?

PID = Process ID.

WD-HEUR (clearly a RKill term): I do not know what it stands for (a trojan in rkill's eyes).

Why don't you also scan with Malwarebytes Antimalware (free) just to gain some peace of mind?

Did that as well as SAS, AdwCleaner, Hitman Pro, JRT...last MBAM was clean.  
Computer is running well.  Anything else I should run?

Thanks for your assistance,

No. Your PC is clean. Make a restore point. And enjoy using it and worry not.
