No, this is the process which is used to scan your system for malware and other baddies. This is a process related to Microsoft Security Essentials. Possibly either Windows Defender or the Malicious Software Removal Tool, too (depends on which one you have installed and enabled/disabled on your system)

Long story short, it's nothing to be concerned about
