safe dll?

I found this as a browser add on. It says it is from Microsoft, but I never noticed it before. Anyone familiar with this? I tried to Google it but came up with nothing 

npctrl.1.0.307160.dll

Re: safe dll?

Hi NY1986, 

In "Manage Add-ons" is there no description under "type".

It may be an ActiveX Control or a plugin for "MS Silverlight" , yet I am not able to match up the last 4 numbers.

Do you have "Silverlight Installed?

Do you notice this add-on after going to a particular website?

Re: safe dll?

It doesn't ring a bell here.

Where did you find it?

Thanks Phil-

I'm not on that computer and I can't recall type, but I think it was an active x control. I disabled it for the time being. I notice after disabling it, it went to the group "Add-Ons that don't need permission to run"

I do have silverlight installed

I noticed it this morning but my wife was on the comp last night. I looked at the history and noticed nothing different. maybe a news story on yahoo. I think she did go to live video.com

I have that same DLL in my Silverlight folder. It is correctly signed by Microsoft so it's probably not malicious.
