What are these weird Tasks I found in Task Scheduler?

So after I fixed my "Windows 7 Home Security 2012" problem I've been doing additional scrubs through my system. I went to Task Scheduler to see what was there and ran across a couple of Tasks which I cannot identify. Anyone know what these are? All of the remaining tasks are known and legitimate.

Double clicking the task name should bring up details on the task. A Guy

+1 REP. Thanks A Guy. Under the Actions tab for each, these tasks are asscociated with the Windows Program Compatibility Assistant (pcalua.exe). I guess they're okay.
