What is it?

Internet Low-Mic Utility Tool (IELowUtil.exe) is the broker process that handles operations which require processing at a Low Integrity level.
Description of ielowutil.exe from Microsoft
Protected Mode IE separates the temporary/persistent data that IE saves from regular LUA (Limited User Account) IE and elevated IE. This is to prevent cross IE injection paths, keeping users secure. However, one of the most significant application compatibility issues remaining with Internet Explorer’s Protected Mode and the low integrity architecture is sharing of cookie data between low and higher integrity processes.
