Download and install Process Explorer (Microsoft SysInternals)

Run Process Explorer and look down the left side tree for "Explorer" .
See if you can find the processes.

Kill them and exit but do not restart.

Scan with Malwarebytes and when it has completed, restart and test.

With PE, you can kill a process and then immediately follow up with Malwarebytes. That does a better job that Task Manager for this.

are you referring "backend services" to the process' child processes? if so, YES, the child processes, if any, can be killed together.  

> is still running it will spawn up a new instance correct?

if you are referring to its related, depending services, NO, those services cannot be killed correspondingly. they have to be killed individually.

Whether a service is restarted after being killed/crashing depends on its recovery option - if set to not do anything, it will not restart.
