    In my task manager (Windows 10) a program called DiskTrace, associated with Intel, is at all times using from 6-12% of my CPU. I check my task manager regularly for suspicious programs and this one only showed up a couple days ago. When I terminate the process, it automatically reappears. I did a lot of internet searches and no malware site lists this as a dirty program, but it's still using way too much memory. Can I safely delete this program?

    Great thanks! It was the Intel Driver Update Utility.
