    Windows System Assessment Tool ran after doing a reboot.

    A few moments ago I had installed the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 980m update for Windows 10. After the installation, I rebooted my machine and after going to the desktop a Command Prompt came up with it being titled something like System32/Winsat.exe.

    A bunch of lines appeared with terms like encryption, or compression and etc. While this was happening, I checked my task manager and found the process to be using 95-98 of my CPU resources and 380 megabytes of my memory as it ran, which was for 15-20 seconds.

    I've only installed Windows 10 yesterday, and did several reboots for Windows Update, but the prompt didn't come up then. I find this behavior odd and would like to know if this is at all normal for Windows 10 and if I could stop it from ever happening again.

    If anyone can help me on this, I'd really appreciate it.
