unknown programs running

When I hit ctrl-alt-del, there are 2 programs listed that I can't identify: aupdate and lucomserver. Does anyone either know what these are, or how I can find out?

aupdate = Auto-up dates for WinME from Microsoft

lucomserver = Norton Live Update

lucomserver - is the live update program for norton products such as norton antivirus
aupdate - i think is the auto update option the the above
to check this - go to your norton product and turn off live/auto update in the options section - i think u will find both stop running - u may have to log off to stop the service from running - dont to forget to change the options back if you live update
