I'm running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. When downloading a ZIP file in Firefox, a DllHost.exe process appears. The command line is this:
It is always the same ProcessID, and the process is related to wininet.dll (C:\Windows\System32\wininet.dll). The Name of the AppID key in the registry is "WinInetCacheServer".
This doesn't seem to happen when downloading .exe files, though.
What is this WinInetCacheServer and what is it doing on my system? It definitely was not there before, I think this whole thing appeared after installing Internet Explorer 10 via Windows Update.
I know that wininet.dll seems to be legit Microsoft stuff, but when a new process that has not been around before suddenly appears, my alarm flags go up. Any recommendations?
