remsh.exe started to appear in my Task Manager and to have high CPU usage

From two days I have remsh.exe in my Task Manager and it has high CPU usage. When I end process and restart Windows during rebooting OS makes some updates. I have Windows updates disabled as my PC is not compatible with the latest Win 10 updates/upgrades. For that reason reinstalling Windows is impossible option for me.

I have CCleaner but older version than the compromised one.

My antivir is Windows Defender and additionally I have Malwarebytes and Zemana.

Google search says remsh.exe could be both Microsoft process and infection.

Could you please help me?

This executable is signed by Microsoft - so it is definitely native.

This is not a native Microsoft process.

Click the Startup tab in the Task Manager, then deactivate this program.

When you right-click the folder C:\Program Files\rempl then you can see when you created it. This should give you a clue about its purpose.
