What is discoveryhelper.dll?

Part of BearShare by MusicLab LLC

What is it?

BearShare is a peer-to-peer file sharing application originally created by Free Peers, Inc. for Microsoft Windows and also a rebranded version of iMesh by MusicLab, LLC, tightly integrated with their music subscription service.
Description of discoveryhelper.dll from MusicLab LLC
BearShare - a peer-to-peer file sharing program that not only allows you to download the latest music and video but you can connect with friends and make new ones who are into the same artists. The users can easily access other profiles, pictures and their music libraries. A common notion about peer-to-peer programs is the risk involved in file sharing due to viruses, which is why BearShare has gone to great lengths to ensure the application is well protected against any viruses and only allows video and music file formats to be shared.

How is discoveryhelper.dll loaded?

Safe for scripting control - discoveryhelper.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {F8AB43ED-EC88-4de7-B213-F89157D29C63} with and identifier of CLSID\{F8AB43ED-EC88-4de7-B213-F89157D29C63}\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 - discoveryhelper.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {F8AB43ED-EC88-4de7-B213-F89157D29C63} with and identifier of CLSID\{F8AB43ED-EC88-4de7-B213-F89157D29C63}\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.
