I was watching a YouTube video and suddenly it started going all twitchy, and the audio was going all static. So I went to task manager and my CPU was at 100% and my memory was at 90%. This happened for a good 5 minutes then the process disappeared. Does anyone know what that was all about? And do I have to worry about it happening again?

Maybe Windows was downloading an update and it was using a lot of resources. What tasks were running? Check Event History for Information.

That process is related to the windows store, you can disable it from ever running again if you wish.
