Erroneous reports stemming from different companies’ antivirus programs have alarmed some users into thinking that this process is a virus. The reports turned out to be false positive, and updates to various antivirus programs should fix this particular issue.
However, you are still advised to run a regular scan with a reliable antivirus program whenever you encounter a suspicious program. Malware often camouflages itself by using similar nomenclature to legitimate software. A good antivirus and anti-spyware tool, will also help you maintain your system at optimum levels.
Non-system processes like brs.exe originate from software you installed on your system.

It is recommended that you check your registry to identify slowdown issues.
