    But as per the pic above ( https://imgur.com/a/FNowNcd)
    i cant find this app doing this in the middle of my main screen. i uninstalled everything except iobit system care, and that i also force closed to see if it will shut down the program.

    it also doesn't show up on m task bar , in task manager i closed programs that i thought it could be but still , went to my add and remove programs also the same

    IOBIT System Care should be permanently uninstalled immediately. - Not only does it add extra PUPs to your system, but its functions probably do A LOT more harm than good, as is the case with most IOBIT software. - They provide it free to you, they pay for it by bundling PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and adware with it. - Nothing is free: The only free lunch is in a mousetrap.

    I suggest that you install and run ADWcleaner to destroy the many PUPs that I guarantee are lurking on your drive. https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

    - Besides which the latest capabilities integrated into Windows 10 have made it pretty much self-sustaining and have rendered such 3rd party programs as the IOBIT range obsolete.

    If you've "uninstalled everything except iobit system care" I'd hate to even imagine what "everything" might be. You've probably picked up a nasty program from somewhere (From what you say it appears that you collect any freeware you can.) that's hidden itself in your system.

    "You state "I usually can help myself with most problems even hardware on a good day."... Perhaps today is not a good day.

    I think that this thread should be moved to the "Virus & Other Malware Removal" category. - Let the fun and games begin.

    Entertain yourself a while; I have a feeling this may take some time.

    P.S.: I suggest removing Avast antivirus and reverting to the default Windows Defender, which is far more effective.

    To clear up what i meant by everything is the cpu gpu ram app that in the middle of my screen ,and apps that could have done that , like after burner that i uninstalled.

    i will do the malware bytes asap
    For the anti virus i will change that but not sure if windows defender is the greatest but is turned on atm , will look for a anti virus to use..

    thx i will give feed back as soon as i am done with the malware bytes

    @Oddba11 just becomes a smaller version of it self by removing the graph no X to close it

    Windows Defender isn't the greatest, but it's better than Avast. Kaspersky Free Antivirus is the ONLY free antivirus that I endorse.

    The concensus on anti-virus software will vary depending on who you speak to but generally speaking, experts seem to agree that Windows Defender is the best option on Windows 10 to avoid conflicts and other potential issues.

    I think it's a bit premature to move this to the Virus & Other Malware Removal forum as was requested by one of the helpers. Troubleshooting can continue here until some evidence of malware warrants the move.

    In the meantime, keep in mind that we shouldn't be bad-mouthing a specific program or company as I pointed out in another thread only yesterday in order to avoid legal issues. Suffice to speak in general terms about the harm "these types" of programs can do when referring to registry cleaners, optimizers, etc.

    Yes I do apologise for picking out the IOBIT brand in particular and leading with the brand name as an example - However it is a well known fact that IOBIT - but not IOBIT solely - do package PUPs with their software for the purpose of financing their operation from the amount that they charge the creators of said PUPs. Despite this fact; it would be better and more accurate that I say that these types of programs such as registry cleaners, optimisers, etc can cause significant harm. I apologise to IOBIT for any unintentional defamation, should there be any, and I did not intend to single them out specifically in regard to distribution of PUPs. Had their product not been already mentioned by another party I doubt that their brand name would have ever been brought up.

    But did you run ADWCleaner? It is fast and free, and will often find and fix issues that other miss.

    Also, try a "Clean Boot" and see if the monitoring app still shows up.

    PUPs are not always a bad thing hence the "potentially" part of Potentially Unwanted Programs. Most software, at least the better ones, give the option to opt out upon installation. Some standalone software intentionally installed will be flagged as a PUP simply due to the nature of what they do. It's up to the user to decide if it's something they wanted or not. BTW, it's OK to name the program you want to uninstall but after that generalization about potential harm is preferable.

    Could it be the Game Bar CPU GPU RAM overlay built into Windows 10?

    What happens if you hit the key combination Win+G?
