Samsung Laptop Series 9, Windows 8.1, Core i-7-3571, 8GB ram

I've recently noticed while viewing task manager that printfilterpipelinesvc.exe is regularly running as high as 30% CPU usage. From my brief searches I do not think it should be anywhere near this high. Can anyone help me with this?

I am concerned that this high CPU usage could be related to some malware or virus. I actively run both malewarebytes and windows defender and they do not detect anything.

I am a first time poster, please let me know what additional information you need from me regarding my PC, etc.
