as the data are located in an Excel table, why don't you use an obvious easy formula ?​
As even if a VBA procedure is necessary the same formula can be used …​

I tryed that, but there are more than 100.000 rows in the file. The amount of formulas slows down the file extremely.
I put my question in VBA, i am hoping for a vba solution,not a formula suggestion.

So you did not understand or just misread and maybe you do not know even under VBA​
some Excel features can be more efficient, faster and easier to maintain than some bad classic looping code !​
So according to your attachment a VBA demonstration as a beginner starter :​
Sub Demo1()
         Const F = "IF((A2:A#=""Yes"")*(B2:B#=C2:C#),""Processed"","""")"
    With SH1.[A1].CurrentRegion.Rows
        .Range("D2:D" & .Count).Value2 = .Parent.Evaluate(Replace(F, "#", .Count))
    End With
End Sub
Do you like it ? So thanks to click on bottom right Like !​

There is also the classic Range.Find method - to see in VBA help - : as this is a cell by cell process​
so the less "Processed" cells to update, the faster and obviously the more, the slower …​
Another way is to combine a filter or an advanced filter with the SpecialCells function in case Demo1 is too long …​
