I have made some research and I saw it's an Nvidia process but can't seem to confirm why the hell it's called Russian Roulette 2 (nw.exe) and why it's there in the first place, anyone knows or have this? I can't find any process named nw.exe in my PC or any info about it being a virus online. Can someone look into this please?

I don't know what part of the Nvidia driver package it is part of
it could be
I think nw.exe is a node-webkit wrapper. Node webkit is a toolkit for turning a web app into an executable.

That's probably it, the one I have has the same logo and I now I managed to found it in a folder of a Steam game installed a while back. Thanks for the help.
