    Ok,,

    TiWorker.exe is Windows Modules Installer Worker

    It is found in the following 2 locations of Windows 8

    C:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_31bf3856ad364e35_6.2.9200.16384_none_060a6d2998b13f25

    C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_31bf3856ad364e35_6.2.9200.16384_none_622908ad510eb05b

    I did not find it in Win7

    This is appears to be part of Windows updates. It is not running on my system,
    I checked using Process Explorer v15.22

    So, this process should not be running all the time as best I can tell.
    If it is, then a. it may be infected or b. there may be an issue with windows updates

    Try running windows updates and install any updates listed. See if you get any errors.

    Beyond that I could not find much more info

    Random system crashes can be caused by anything

    Try running SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    But start with Option 2 (scroll down for it).

    Then do Option 3 and let us know what you found
