Task Manager shows FLOW and FIREFOX Using large amount of CPU, If I terminate FLOW it returns to normal, but comes back!

For the last week Task Manager is showing Firefox using lots of CPU, causing fans to come on in laptop, at the same time 'FLOW' is showing about the same high usage. I never installed Flow. When I 'end task' on Flow Firefox reverts to normal. But Flow reappears on it's own. If I remove Conexant Flow, it comes back again. Can anyone help? It also worries me why Flow should be using so much CPU, when (apparently) it is only a driver?

The next time this happens, open the Windows Task Manager. Right-click o Flow and open its file location.

Then copy the full path and name of the program and post it.
