edit: Sorry for Off-Topic @bernek : I found it by chance, using WinDirStat to check for stuff to delete to free some space on my SSD. There was a folder in AppData that looked empty in Explorer (with view hidden files activated) but took about 500mb according to WinDirstat through which I was able to open it and see that it contained some dlls and an exe. I didnt make a picture of the folder. But I found some people on the net with a similar issue: C:\Users\MYNAME\AppData\Roaming\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\Children\001\Internet Settings\cpu Some of these folders do not appear and seem empty even when you have "view hidden files" activated. The miner only activated when the CPU/GPU were idling. I have since formatted my SSD and reinstalled Windows and everything now works flawlessly. I guess, installing those cracked games/repacks isn't always a good idea.
