Most likely it's a communication service that runs in the background that is installed and allowed to run through the installation of Lexmark printer. The service can be stopped without any harm to the operation of the user's O/S. It can also be disabled and set to be started manually. I have yet to delete the \systems\lxcgcoms.exe file though in fear of the after effects.
