I am using Windows 10, and BitDefender Free Edition as Antivirus.
Sometimes (it occurred not only once), I hear my CPU Fan spinning at very high speed and when I open my Task Manager to see what's going on, I found that BitDefender is eating up CPU resource seriously.
And then I open up BitDefender console to see what's going on.
And I found that every 1~3 seconds, a few files were either blocked or deleted; all of them from the Directory
C:\Windows\Temp\tmp0000033c\. File name starting with
Full message is like this:
item was blocked. Threat name: Adware.GenericKD.3642843. Path: C:\Windows\Temp\tmp0000033c\temp0000****.
Even if I try to delete this folder and files, they are generated immediately again and again.
Since each file is actually quite large (719KB), I try to use Resource Monitor to see what is writing those files onto my HDD. However, what I found is
So now I have no idea what is the cause of this, but the high CPU usage is really scary.
Is there a way to prevent these files from spawning, or find out what program is spawning these files?
