To gain that evidence, you need to perform Clean Boot and enable processes manually, until you find out the culprit. Once you know who the intruder is, you know what to do with it.
5] Reinstall Technic Launcher
If nothing works then maybe the issue is with the launcher. What you need to do is uninstall it and then install a fresh copy of the launcher. This will replace the corrupted files with new and correct ones resolving the issue that you were facing.
