Just changed broadband from Sky to BT, and must have agreed to install BT's toolbar and Desktop Help. I now have 3 instances of BTHelpBrowser.exe running. Each taking up around 2852k of memory. Why 3 of them I have no idea! They're not running away with the CPU (yet) so will allow them to stay for the time being.
It eats up System RAM and consumes much CPU time and I have recently had multiple Process being executed. I am not yet sure if it is trying to locate a problem with my BT Broadband.

Not enough. Two instances show on Resource Monitor, accounting for about half of total CPU usage. Can't isolate it to remove though.

Best practices for resolving BTHelpBrowser issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with BTHelpBrowser. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
