    I think it's a scheduled task to check the health of the disk. Is it consuming a lot of resources?

    Annoying - as it goes as a window over the screen (black old DOS style one).

    Yes and yes. I'm running Build 10576.

    Window comes for a few seconds only, any move with mouse - it disappears.

    Yes, they specifically called that out as a fix in the next build.
