    High CPU usage for 'UTCSVC'

    Hello, I was checking my task manager yesterday and noticed a high CPU usage for something called UTCSVC. I checked online and it looked like I had installed an update which may be some kind of key-logger - KB3022345. However, I have checked my installed updates and this is one I have not installed. My question is what is this 'UTCSVC', do I need it and why is it running so high?
