BgProbe.exe multiplies?

Sometimes BgProbe.exe multiplies in the task manager to a number close to 200 exe files. When that happens the cpu is using 98% and everything is generally running slow/freezes.

I don't know what is causing it, but everything is fine at startup. My only thought is that somehow its linked to firefox, where it has a plugin.

Any suggestions that doesn't involve the obvious virus scan? ;)

My system:
windows 8, 64-bit
latest bullguard software
