wmiprvse.exe is a system process, wich is hanging in memory for several minutes after booting and then unloads. It weights over 215 kb. Also there is a Trojan which can pretends to be the wmiprvse.exe. Scan you pc with antivirus.
aawservice.exe is a service of this product and if you upload it then the product won't be able to work.
usnsvc.exe - msn messanger 8.1 installs it and it stays active even after msn closed.
I haven't heard about Security Task Manager, so I can't tell you anything.
