    rundll32.exe opens and closes continiously


    All this started back in early August, or about the time "Windows Creator" was installed.
    I have sound notifications for processes that open or close, a paranoia from long ago, or I would have never known this was going on.

    rundll32.exe continuously opens and closes (1-2sec intervals) when a "windows explorer" R click menu is pulled up. I can pull up "MS Process Explorer" and it all stops. Found the culprit process by 1st pulling up "Process Explorer" and then R click on any icon pinned to the taskbar. I could then see the process open and closing.

    I'm sure someone will suggest to simply just turn off the sounds for opening and closing, but I like to know when something is happening that is not normal, and a continual opening and closing of a process is not normal.... Normally all is quiet.

    I would imagine it's some sort of context menu extension kicking in on the right click menu, what is on your right click context menus in explorer? Does it happen when right clicking on the desktop?

    I can't see anything obvious on there, I thought there might be some sort of application extension installed which is initialising rundll32.exe whenever a right click is performed. Does this happen only when you right click on the taskbar? Or when you right click an empty part of the desktop too?
