Whenever i start my pc a task called brhost.exe runs everytime and uses around 30% of my cpu , and i have to use task manager to close the task everytime i start my pc.It is not detected by windows defender as a virus so im not sure exactly what this is , but im pretty sure its not supposed to be running on my pc.Whenever i go ahead and delete the source folder of the task it just shows up the next time i start my PC.Any idea on how to remove this "virus"?

i installed this antivirus , brhost was indeed identified as malware , and seems to be a bitcoin mining program.I quarantined all threats and it seems to have stopped this process from running.
