Is CryptoMining happenning with my pc ???

Today, I notice my Task Managers settings and found my GPU( nvdia GTX 1050ti ) is consuming 100% usage, After that I looked into the directory of my C DRIVE, and found these files and folder named as crypto >>

" C:\Users\hgupt\AppData\LocalLow\Microsoft\Crypto\TokenBindingKeys\Keys "
" C:\Users\hgupt\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\Keys "
" C:\Users\hgupt\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\S-1-5-21-1836123348-1322964296-2659438181-0001 "

And inside these folders it contains some weird files. ( extension of these files are >> .sys )

Why these files and folders are there ?
What are these folders do ?
Is it related to crypto Mining ?
Is this safe ?
