Wincache.exe eating 20% of my CPU (possible malware)

As the title says I am very conspicous about this process eating almost exactly 20% of my CPU all the time. Tried manually deleting it but it was impossible due to the fact the right after I killed this process it restarted doing the exact same thing.

 

Any help would be welcome as I don't want to feed someones mining dreams :)

Right click on it, I think you can click open file location and delete the malware

Solved the problem :) Turns out there was also NSSM specifically to restart it after it was killed thus blocking my ability to delete it. Fixed it now, thanks for help :)
