    i added an SSD to my computer. not sure if related, but later i started to see the above executible running about 20% of my cpu, causing my cpu temperature to go up, then the computer turns off; not sure if due to hi temp (63 degrees celcius).

    i have never seen this executible use cpu before like this. how do i stop it? and could it be a virus? kaspersky and malwarebytes found nothing.

    thanks.
