Suspected virus [Cortana.exe] help needed

Hello guys, I am suspicious if there is a trojan horse virus infected my computer. I have tried to use Malwarebyte to scan and locate it with no result, so I decided to seek for advice from fellow Reddit users. Please find below analysis based on the recommended sites in this sub, and a screenshot of the Cortana.exe in my resource monitor.

Please let me know if any other info I should provide, big thanks in advance for your help! :D

Is this serious?

bruh, you don’t know it?!?! Cortana is an built-in feature in Windows 10. It an pretty non-commonly use feature by microsoft, it a AI-base virtual assistant. It would be a huge problem if some random hacker found exploits about Cortana though. Cortana can open websites, changes non-admin settings like wifi, bluetooth,… But Cortana is completely safe to use and safe to keep. You can disable Cortana if you don’t what to use it!
