sounds like something downloaded to your comp that is trying to mine and send out the info i would look up what programs can do this and check to see if you have them

What routers antivirus? In my experience, routers don't have antivirus. They can block things and show you a log, is that what you mean?

Looks like you have a mining malware, you most likely got it from that one game you downloaded.

 

First thing first, make sure internet options and firewall are set to default

Search for "internet Options" and make sure each zone is set to default, each zone should have a greyed out "Default Level"

Now go to firewall settings and click "Restore defaults"

Now, the BEST way to remove any malware/virus is to do a clean windows reinstall

BUT if you can't do that, you can run multiple security scans.

 

Let's starts with AdwCleaner: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/ <<< download and save to desktop

You will want to have these settings:

Run the scan and reset when it asks you to and reply with the log by copy and paste using the code < > in the forum reply toolbar

 

Now, download Malwarebytes: https://www.malwarebytes.com/premium/

Do a FULL system scan with scan for rootkits enabled (image below)

After the Malwarebytes scan is done, I suggest scanning with Windows Defender and then scan again with AdwCleaner.
