How is shdocvw.dll loaded?

Internet Explorer bar - shdocvw.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {4D5C8C25-D075-11d0-B416-00C04FB90376}. Explorer Bars within Microsoft's Internet Explorer Web browser reserve part of the browser window, either the side or the bottom of the browser window to load an application in a way that is not directly related to the viewable content of Web pages.
Shell open command - shdocvw.dll is typically associtated with identifier name of InternetShortcut with and identifier of rundll32.exe shdocvw.dll,OpenURL %l. 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.
Copy hook handler - shdocvw.dll is typically associtated with identifier name of CDF. 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 - shdocvw.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {2559a1f7-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0} with and identifier of Set Program Access and Defaults. 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.
Safe for scripting control - shdocvw.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {64AB4BB7-111E-11d1-8F79-00C04FC2FBE1} with and identifier of CLSID\{64AB4BB7-111E-11d1-8F79-00C04FC2FBE1}\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 - shdocvw.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {64AB4BB7-111E-11d1-8F79-00C04FC2FBE1} with and identifier of CLSID\{64AB4BB7-111E-11d1-8F79-00C04FC2FBE1}\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.
Internet Explorer extension - shdocvw.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE}. Browser extensions allow applications to add functionality to the browser and change the user interface in a way that is not directly related to the viewable content of Web pages.
Internet Explorer URL search hook - The shdocvw.dll IE search hook plugin has a registered CLSID of {CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497}. A URL Search Hook is called by Internet Explorer when the browser cannot determine the protocol (such as http, ftp, etc.) of a URL address. When attempting to navigate to a URL that does not contain a protocol, Internet Explorer first attempts to determine the correct protocol using the unmodified address.
Context menu handler - shdocvw.dll is typically associtated with identifier name of Window Switcher. 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.
