While running it constantly uses 35 - 40% of cpu. Stopping it doesn't seem to affect anything or do anything detrimental.

I looked it up on this site because my computer was taking at least 20 mins to boot up and I saw it was not important and found out if I need the file I can redownload it if needs be. Right after I deleted the file the computer automatically rebooted and it toke less than a minute to load up. I found the file in my processor's files and it seems like it was put there by some hacker. I think it is a possible spyware
