What is this process? It on a fresh install of Windows Server 2008 with an Oracle 11g database installed on it. The process is in c:\windows\ and according to Sophos Anti-virus it is trying to access the registry. It is probably harmless, but before I take it out of quarantine I'd like to know what it is. Google results only show it appearing in lists of processes.
I would suggest installing SysInternals' ProcMon, and watching what parts of registry is the service trying to access.
