Hi,

The highlighted process sometimes goes up to as high as 55% ish CPU for hours on end, making my computer lag for no reason. If I individually close the process, nothing happens, and the issue fixes itself (firefox runs fine with it closed).

It is concerning since I could not find anything on google about this process, is this some kind of malware? I did run a MalwareBytes scan on my entire computer, and nothing turned up.

Please let me know what that process is.
