How is shell32.dll loaded?

Shell open command - shell32.dll is typically associtated with identifier name of msstylesfile with and identifier of C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe C:\Windows\system32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL C:\Windows\system32\desk.cpl desk,@Appearance /ActioC:OpenMSTheme /filC:"%1". A Shell Open Command allows for an association of a file extension and a program. This association allows an application to be run when the icon or a context menu item is clicked upon in the Windows Explorer window.
Context menu handler - shell32.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {a2a9545d-a0c2-42b4-9708-a0b2badd77c8}. Windows Explorer displays a context menu for a file object when it is clicked with the right mouse button. This context menu allows various operations to be performed on the file object from within Explorer, like printing it or opening it with another program.
Autoplay handler - shell32.dll is typically associtated with identifier name of MSCDBurningOnArrival with and identifier of SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoplayHandlers\Handlers\MSCDBurningOnArrival. Autoplay will scan removable media, when it arrives, looking for media content types (music, graphics, or video). When a removable media arrives, Windows determines what actions to perform by evaluating the content and comparing it to registered handlers for that content. An application will register a handler for Autoplay events associated with a media type.
Copy hook handler - shell32.dll is typically associtated with identifier name of FileSystem. Normally, users and applications can copy, move, delete, or rename folders with few restrictions. A program that implements a copy hook handler can control whether these operations take place. For instance, a copy hook handler can prevent critical folders from being renamed or deleted.
Approved shell extension - shell32.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {3c2654c6-7372-4f6b-b310-55d6128f49d2} with and identifier of Alphabetical Categorizer. When the system detects that the user is downloading an external program that runs as part of the Windows user interface, the system searches for a digital certificate or requests that the user approve the action. If you enable this policy, Windows only starts approved programs.
Shell service object delay load - shell32.dll is typically associtated with identifier name of PostBootReminder. Applications listed here are loaded automatically by Explorer.exe when your Windows boots. Because Explorer.exe is the core shell for Windows, it will always start, thus always loading the applications registered withn the Shell Service Object and are loaded early in the startup process before a user can interact with the system.
PROTOCOLS filter - shell32.dll is typically associtated with identifier name of text/webviewhtml with and identifier of {733AC4CB-F1A4-11d0-B951-00A0C90312E1}. Asynchronous pluggable protocols such as a Protocol Filter enables applications to create MIME filters that work with Microsoft Internet Explorer. Pluggable MIME filters can be used to filter data for a particular MIME type and allows that application to read and write data.
Safe for scripting control - shell32.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {1820FED0-473E-11D0-A96C-00C04FD705A2} with and identifier of CLSID\{1820FED0-473E-11D0-A96C-00C04FD705A2}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95801-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. Safe for scripting is a Windows policy that disables the Internet Explorer security prompt for Windows Installer scripts. It allows Web-based programs to install software on the computer without notifying the user. By default, when a script hosted by an Internet browser tries to install a program on the system, the system warns users and allows them to select or refuse the installation. This setting suppresses the warning and allows the installation to proceed.
Safe for initializing control - shell32.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {1820FED0-473E-11D0-A96C-00C04FD705A2} with and identifier of CLSID\{1820FED0-473E-11D0-A96C-00C04FD705A2}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95802-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. When a program is initialized, it can receive data from another program for initializing its state. This is a potential security hazard because the data could come from an untrusted source. Programs that guarantee no security breach regardless of the data source are considered safe for initialization and are registered as such.
