Bigly Torrent Client hogging pc’s resources when user is away. suspected to be a crypto mining bait.

looks like it is trying to stay undetected by releasing resources immediately on user activity.
usually i leave my pc on all the time and the torrent client open so my torrents can reach at least a share ratio of 1. luckily i leave the system monitor active and the cpu usage history shows clearly intensive cpu usage before logging in. this began since installing the latest version, the previous version never used so much resources even when everything was being downloaded/uploaded at full capacity. i’m going to uninstall it completely and make sure there are no traces left behind, however i am not able to disassemble, analyze and find out exactly what it was doing. can anyone with the skills plz take a look at it?
