I am sure you know by now what that exe does....just in case here is the wiki on it:


It is part of Windows so it can't be stopped/removed but your problem is not normal. Is your system pretty old? Underpowered by today's standards? Has it been a while since you backed up your data and did a fresh build? if it is Windows 10 and you have a SSD for a drive it's pretty quick. Maybe you picked up some type of infection? A rebuild should cure that.
