    Wincpu.exe is Bitcoin Mining program, or malware/ virus.
    Use some antivirus and do a scan of the computer.

    And run and install the malwarebytes to remove it.
  2. Thank you so much.
  3. I ran the scan and I have one more question. It states its in my C: in a file called mine. Is that entire folder part of the virus and can I delete it because the scanner did not get rid of it?
