ThinkPad laptop computers were originated by IBM, who sold their personal computer business to Lenovo Group Ltd., a Chinese company with US headquarters in Morrisville, NC, USA. The older (legacy) ThinkPad models include the Keyboard Configuration Utility. It enables predefined key assignments on the ThinkPad keyboard, (the Windows key and an Application key), and on an external keyboard, (audio volume control buttons, a mute button, ThinkPad and AccessIBM buttons, and others). Lenovo classifies this module as a Legacy Driver in its Support system and they have been advertising changes to the Thinkpad keyboard in newer models. References have been found associating TpKmpSVC.exe with the T45 and T60 models. If you want a detailed security rating about your TpKmpSVC.exe (and all other running background processes) read the following user opinions, and download the free trial version of Security Task Manager. www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/tpkmpsvc.exe.html 

Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection! Check it out!
