This is a Startup entry, not a running process - although it may be visible in Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) if it continues running after startup. Before ending a process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it is listed as an "X", please check whether it's actually set to start using MSCONFIG or another tool.

Some bad startup entries use the same names as common Windows processes, and it may be difficult to distinguish between them in Task Manager. If in doubt, seek advice before doing anything.
