help i think my gaming pc has a virus

So for some reason my gpu keeps running at 100% and cooling fans go crazy. So i go open task manager to see whats hogging up my resources and for a split second I see a process called “nslookup.exe” using 100% gpu usage then it immediately goes back to 0. And the thing is when I go close task manager it runs 100% again. Who ever made this virus is using tricks so that people can’t whats see hogging they’re resources but luckily I saw it for a split second.

So I go do a quick scan of all my files and “sihost32.exe” pops up which i believe is a bitmining virus. So I went ahead and removed it. But this did not resolve my issue. Gpu still running at 100. What should I do to fix this?

What is the location of nslookup? System32? Upload it to VirusTotal and post the results link.
