There are two programs in my Program Files (x86) folder that I don't recognize. I'm not sure if they're remnants of some virus I have/had or just some new update stuff that I just haven't noticed before.
I scoured the web looking for any hint of these programs (Gritty Capital and Lazy Cycle) but I found nothing so I attempted to delete it which it refuses to let me do. It's not even in my "Uninstall a Program" and when I go to my (C:) drive to remove it, it keeps telling me that the files are open elsewhere even though I've restarted my computer twice.

Basically, my questions are has anyone else had this problem with thse particular programs and if so, is it safe to just leave them or do I need to skillfully remove them?
