The other night I activated my computer at 2:45am when nothing should have been happening. I saw the taskmanager was indicating 100% CPU usage. In the process window two processes named "lube??ymailproxy.exe" were running, but shut down with in a second or two of my activation. What is this process? Spy-bot, Adaware, CCleaner, Advances Windows Care, and Norton do not indicate any problem, but what was the process and why was it running. Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

The place to start would be your scheduled tasks to see if there is any thing scheduled to run at about that time.

Start, Control Panel, Performance and maintenance, Scheduled Tasks. There should be a list of all scheduled jobs and the time each task is scheduled to run.

I would run a Trend Micro Housecall scan to see if anything can be found. What to do next would be based on the scan.
