Multiple instances of Agent.exe using heavy CPU and drive

Technical Support
I left my PC on all day and when I came back 12 hours later I found 4 instances of Agent.exe using up heavy amounts of CPU and disk. wmiprvse.exe was also using 60% of my CPU, but after restarting that service it returned to normal usage. Howerver, the Agent.exe tasks still used roughly 50% of my CPU and some of my disk. Here are screenshots of the task manager and resource monitor before I ended the Agent.exe files.

I have decided not to run Battle.net in the background of my PC since this also happened several months before. It was an easy fix, just kill all the Agent.exe programs, but I just wanna bring light to the issue. If you need me to send any file or logs for the developers just ask.

Edit: Also, why is Agent.exe reading my Google Chrome data?
