"SCNotification.exe" process is not a virus. You should not terminate "SCNotification.exe" process or its parent process "CcmExec.exe", if you don't want it to interrupt you working on the computer, because it uses lots of CPU resources when it runs. You can restart it later, when your computer is free to let it receive updates and patches from Microsoft.
