So i wanted to download a torrent for a game from IGG games but my bitdefender anti virus always said that there was a bitcoin miner wanting to start up the process. It blocks it but this warning always keeps coming back when i start up my pc.

I tried manually to delete them but it just creates a new folder that is similar with these contents. I delete it but it comes back under a new name in a hidden folder of windows.

I watched a few vids to get rid of it and i do see my cpu process spikes when afk and when i open task manager it goes from 90-100% to 40. Or from 80¨% to 20.
Google chrome proces has 21 processes but only 2 tabs are open.

Here's pictures with the warning + the proces of my pc monitored by Process Hacker software:

If BitDefender sees it but can't remove it completely, it may be time for stronger measures.

Sometimes you have to go nuclear.
In the face of a nasty infection like this, either recover from a backup you made before this happened, or...a full wipe and reinstall.
 
After your nuke and pave, and reinstall of everything you need/want, get a good backup (golden image) at exactly that point. Saves time in the event an infection occuring, which will be quite common after utilizing some 'less than optimum' download sources.
