Hi so since about december/january I have been experiencing issue with my pc that i believe ive finally isolated but cannot remove. The virus seems to use upwards of 90% of my CPU randomly (shown in my task manager) and after multiple different malware scans/virus scans ive had 0 luck removing the files. I also have tried to use programs suck as lockhunter to permanently delete the source files but so far nothing has worked, below i will post gyazo screenshots of the issue, programs that i dont recognize in my task manager, and whatever else might help.

Note : After a computer restart the issue doesn't occur / the virus doesn't take effect until approximately 3 hours of use, but when it kicks in it kicks in hard...I've tried deleting the program using lockhunter on system restart but that failed as well.


Ran Malwarebytes anti rootkit as well - https://gyazo.com/39a487ba0087c63e3f5ffeb442cebe8c - Nothing Found.
