Hi, I've been trying to find out what this mystery process is on W7 x64 Pro for a week or so now. It doesn't really affect anything, just it's a bit of a nuisance! The command line that executes it is:

C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,SHCreateLocalServerRunDll {995C996E-D918-4a8c-A302-45719A6F4EA7} -Embedding

Apparently, it's related to the Shell Mixed Content Handler.
I've seen another post on here that says it is solved by disabling Autoplay in Control Panel, but that doesn't remove it :-(

Any help appreciated thanks
