Recently I looked into my Task Manager to find two applications called "YourPhone.exe" and some program named "腾讯手游助手" I know its a virus or something so I don't want to touch the two programs at all. What exactly are these things and how do I remove them? I don't want to fiddle with it at all just in case it triggers something

Edit: This problem has been SOLVED, thank you for the assistance.

Certainly, having unknown things in Chinese showing in task manager is a concern...

but, be advised there is at least one valid 'Your Phone' application, which is now part of Windows, although it should not be running without your explicitly launching it...

IF a quick run of Malwarebytes Antimalware does not remove it, try a www.freefixer.com scan, and carefully looking for the process, autorun, registry entry , etc., that is starting these problematic applications...
 
Did you install an Android emulator, perhaps for running a mobile game on your PC? From a quick search, it looks like that's what "腾讯手游助手" is, and since it's emulating a phone, that might be why "YourPhone.exe" is running, since it may appear to Windows as a phone. Of course, it's possible that these could be other applications going by the same name, but if you are running an Android emulator, then that may be what it is.

ah, i think your right. I forgot I downloaded the Gameloop emulator a while ago to play Clash Of Clans on my pc, then I got bored and didn't play anymore.

no, the program is in chinese because it is an emulator developed by tencent, which is an asian gaming company. I already uninstalled the tencent emulator and i don't see the chinese program running anymore.
