Goodmorning everyone, its been a very long time since I've been here, but I have a huge security issue on my Windows 10 install (19033.1), for a long time I just assumed I had BitCoin miners plaguing my system whenever I left it alone and when I ran through all of AppData manually and scheduled various AV searches, I did find a couple miners and it took care of them. Fast forward a few more days and I just so happen to leave my computer idle for a few minutes, the temps rocket up to 75°C and immediately drop when I move the mouse. Fast forward a few more days and I have the genius idea of finally checking the Event Viewer log! Upon searching, I found the Security tab OVERFLOWING with commands and I've never seen anything like this before. What do you guys make of this and how can I save my install without wiping it?

*Rename the file to .evtx*

Windows 10 does maintenance, defragmenting and stuff in background when u dont use the computer for sometime. It stops doing it when computer is used again, like moving the mouse. This can cause pretty high CPU usage for 1 core sometimes.
