Strange processes on my process list

Hello.

First, I don't know is it right forum for this question. If not, please move my thread to other forum.

I was not looking at this list and today I did it for no reason and noticed something that I'm not sure about.

1. hyoidragaslope.exe.
User name that run this process : System
Location : C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
File details : Screenshot by Lightshot

Searching on Google did NOT give my any result so I don't know anything more about this file.

2. background worker.exe
User name that run this process : System
Location : C:\ProgramData\Digger\
File details : Screenshot by Lightshot

Once again, I never noticed these 2 files. I don't check it regulary but this one time I saw this and what to ask what is it.

Thanks in advance
TSFrozen

Whenever a process is not mentioned in Google, most likely it is a virus.
To find out
Run a full anti virus scan
Run a full scan with malwarebytes
Run a full scan with eset online.
These are good and should reveal the problem.
If nothing is shown, the security specialists will be here to help.
