Solution
Br_funcs.exe is a component of Rescue and Recovery. When the backup process runs, br_funcs.exe will be listed in the process list and will use a considerable portion of the processor. A backup will start without user intervention if regular backups have been scheduled by an administrator. Rescue and Recovery 3 schedules weekly backups by default.

Rescue and Recovery is working as designed.
