RunDLL32.exe v0060Pin.dll,RunDLL32EP 513 is a command in my system startup list. What is it? Is it safe?

When I look at my list of startup programs, I see a startup item called RunDLL32 with a command entry "RunDLL32.exe v0060Pin.dll,RunDLL32EP 513".  What is this for?  Is it safe?  Will it cause any problems if I tell it not to run on system startup?  I am running Windows XP Professional SP2.

Thanks!

it is starting a program that you may not have..

v0060pin.dll looks like spyware.. do a google search and you will come up with several references to this.

so NO... it is NOT safe.

It appears to be related to PC-CAM STI App Registration. I don't think it's malware.

Anyway, it's okay to disable any startup entry if you like, disabling them don't hurt your system. It's really only those security software should be running at startup like Antivirus, Firewall etc. anything else can be run when you need them.

I did a Google search before I asked the question.  I saw this referenced in log lists but never mentioned if it was a problem or not.  Did you see a place that gave more details?

No, not much details.
The reason I think it is legit is because out of over 100 hits that I googled into, its display name didn't changed. Malware has random display names that changes often.
Out of a hundred the display name only changed twice and it then referenced to MS still imaging, the version number also changed just twice.

If it was malware, the display name would have changed at least 80 times with those google hits.
Like I said, disabling it to run at startup will not hurt your system.

Thanks for the points with "A" grade.
