    What is XMRig? [​IMG]

    I have run Rkill and then Malwaresbytes and ESET Online Scanner and also in Safe mode with both scanners, Under win 10 2004 (19041.508)
    which have found nothing/nada
    If these keeps saying (Active) does this mean that the programs are actually running?
    why do two programs not show anything wrong and windows Av keeping giving me these issues?
    My lappy is LAGGY as heck and usually System interrupts go up to 100% a lot of the last few weeks
    What else can i try as i am going grey over this What is XMRig? :)
    Thanks guys

    Edit, i cannot find any of the folders these PUAs are running under either
