SECUROM is a very effective type of copy protection. It has been proven to cause serious performance problems on a lot of systems. Unfortunately, it is also necessary to run any game that uses it. Pheonix
Was installed when I installed UT2003 so that I would have to play with the CD until the patch came out resolving the issue.
Was installed with a game. Some kind of copy protection. Get rid of it. Any silently installed components can be considered spyware. hmd
Installed with Commandos Strike Force fx
Most likely an illegal rootkit installed for purpose of copy protection. It can cause problems with other tools, so it's recommended to remove it if possible.
Either a trojan or a worm. Prevents you from running task manager Al
used by EliteToolbar = spyware : Damic
Part of SECUROM Copy Protection, which is installed without user knowledge. Disassembly reveals that it alters Windows Security and Administrative Settings. Gunny
it came from tomb raider anniversary burak
Crashes my Explorer.exe on my WinXP SP3 everytime i use the Context Menu. Delete die COM Object Registry Key under HKEY_CURRENT_CLASSES_ROOT to get rid of it Luke Skywalker
Part of the Securom crash-ware. Useless against piracy, usefull to piss of legitimate users. Best way to get rid of it is to get an "unofficial patch" for your legally acquired software. I just got this crap crashing my explorer in my 100% pirate-free, virus free, antivirus free (everything that comes in is checked by another computer) gaming computer. Hurricane
This file is handcuffware and should be deleted and you should sue whoever sold you the program that contained this DLL file
seems to cause right click desktop freeze  See also: Link Maxitaxi
SecuROM extension. If it blacklists virtual drives, copy, paste and delete operations in explorer are being screwed up and explorer crashes often. Also prohibits ATI Desktop Manager and Multidesk from operating. Slows down System a L-O-T. Search file and rename immediately, clean referrences afterwards. Raven
Causes crashes in Windows Explorer
Crashes my Explorer.exe on my Windows 7 when using Context Menu. Supersnake
It is made by Sony DADC Austia AG. And it seems to crash windows explorer when rightclick on a .exe file. If you run ShellExView and disable the dll, then my computer doesn't crash while rightclick an .exe file in explorer. The link is in dutch.  See also: Link Molshoop
I am an accountant and I have recently installed GRID (racing game) on my Windows Vista PC. After the installation, the initialisation of one of my accounting packages caused Windows Explorer to malfunction. I downloaded and installed ShellExView and in this way determined that this Shell Extension was the cause of the problem.  See also: Link Janco Kotze
Sony SecuROM file which will cause a ton of slowdown, disables ATi/AMD video card functions, and causes explorer crashes to the point where the computer becomes almost unusable.
Crashes your Windows Explorer, when you right click your mouse. Not sure where i got it from, but I disabled it with ShellExView and ive had no problems since.. Keith
apparently installed with ALL EA games. had this problem with F.E.A.R. and SW:TOR.
Causes Windows explorer to not repond. When I disabled it WE came back as desired....but.... now Call of Duty IV does not work Bill Barnes
