Lately, my computer has been running very loudly. It seems to be putting to much effort into my "Host Process for Windows Tasks" (taskhost.exe) and sometimes the "Windows Modules Installer Worker" (TiWorker.exe). I've Google searched and cannot find an answer to reduce its' usage. I read that there can be malware or a virus in my system 32. I don't have any defenders so it would make sense. But I've done two system and computer scans and haven't found even a minor virus.
How do I resolve this issue? What could be the cause?
I have a new computer (built a year ago) and it hasn't run this loud since I've had it. I ordered a can of compressed air as I am writing this so maybe when I clean the inside it will be quieter. But this still doesn't answer why this .exe is hogging up so much CPU and Memory usage.
It uses about 20-50% of CPU and 32.8 MB
Additionally, I do not run the computer 24/7, I take very good care of it. Well... I try to!
