CMD prompt window pops up and instantly disappears periodically

cmd.exemalwarepromptvirus

Windows 10 – Every 10 minutes or so, a command line window flashes on my computer. I'm afraid I may have been infected by something. I've been staring at the Task Manager (and process explorer) for days, and can't narrow it down to what is causing this. I've tried MSconfig to check the startup programs- nothing seems out of the ordinary. I've used Malwarebytes, and ran Tron Script once, and installed all the new windows updates, in hopes it would fix the problem, but it still persists.

I may have downloaded something.

Is there a way to check the Event Viewer to see what is launching this window?

Check the task scheduler, see if anything added in there could be triggering it.
