What to check when Windows 10 using 100% CPU and disk

I had a a classical computer issue, you know the story: I was in a rush to do some photographic work and I needed it to be done fast. I turn my computer on, and start working on a software that consumes a lot of CPU. My computer is slooooowwww and the fan is running full speed, which is rare.

My initial thought is “ARG virus!”. The follow-up action is ‘ctrl-alt-delete’ and task maanger. This is where I see Windows Modules Installer Worker eating most of my CPU. What is Windows Modules Installer Worker?

Searching online I discover this article where I learn that what is slowing down my computer is a software managing the updates of Windows.

No problem, just some worries.
