Sneaky miner virus on pc


So I was doing stupid shit with my pc( like always) and accidentally caught my eye on the cpu usage.

And the cpu usage upon opening ‘Task Manager’

Noticed the drop on cpu usage ? This drop happens you open your TM to check your cpu usage, but the miner closes itself to avoid suspicion. Miner also stops when you disconnect from internet (obviously).

The sudden spike shows that right after closing the Task manager the miner started.

Problem is that it also stops running when any antivirus is ran and I tried using Windows powershell to find the usage but unfortunately its nested in svchost and reinstalling windows is the only option.

This takes on avg. 30% of your cpu usage.

Thanks.
