something is triggering malwarebytes like crazy and its alerting as a bitcoin miner, its under the file of vegas in shadows appdata and when malwarebytes removes the protected file (since its protected by administrator so i cant do it myself) it comes back and starts trying again. something similar also happened on my home computer but i havent downloaded anything as of recent on either computers so my guess is that it was a dormant malware if thats possible.

Hey @TheRealG4L4XY 
Avoid using antivirus programs like Malwarebytes on your shadow since it may detect (critical) Shadow components as a threat and will (try to) remove it which may case serious issues. For your issue on your home PC you can try making an exception for the falsely detected Shadow files.
