This dynamic link library is an add-on for the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser, also called a Browser Helper Object (BHO). It is a standard component of the Yahoo! Companion software package. It loads automatically when the IE browser is opened. Originally intended as a bookmark manager and popup blocker, it now provides an experience within the toolbar similar to mobile apps, offering links to Facebook, Yahoo! Mail, Weather, and News, among others. The Toolbar is not essential to the operation of Internet Explorer and can be uninstalled with no harm. In 2010, this DLL was preventing Internet Explorer 7.x from loading and had to be removed to get IE to start. The problem was fixed in later versions of the Toolbar download.

A dynamic link library (.dll) is a file containing executable binary code which is not directly executable by calling its own name but receives calls to routines within it from other modules such as IE. The chief purpose of .dll library files is to reduce the size of primary executable modules when they are loaded into the processor.

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!
