What is this and how do I kill it?  It hides , install Chrome, and then silently launches multiple instances.  Malwarebytes does not find anything nor does Trend micro.

have you attempted a system restore a good day or two before this problem started. Usually that removes it or at the very least malyware will catch it and kill it

Programs with apparently random file names like that are usually malware of some kind.

You said:
"It hides , install Chrome, and then silently launches multiple instances"

Do you mean that this program is not visible in Task Manager UNTIL you open Google Chrome, and you then see multiple instances of "kdqzdimdlrc.exe" (exactly the same file name) running in Task Manager?

If so, have you tried disabling all add-ons in Chrome?

What is your operating system?
