Samuel B it starts with some adobe software, and is related to licensing purposes
Zilla On the Windows 2000/XP operating system the license manager is installed as a manually started, LocalSystem service named “Macromedia Licensing Service”. An additional process related to the license manager is called “~e5d141.tmp”. Two instances of this process are present when a Macromedia application is running.
