Sorry, nothing comes up on Google either...

Have you tried hovering the mouse pointer over the word and right clicking for properties?

Never heard of this one - You could try running Malwarebytes OR maybe just delete it.

I have unticked it in the start up but it came straight back in a new box , the old one is still there but without the tick,
The title next to it in start up is rundll32.exe

Rundll32.exe is a legit Windows program. The trouble is that viruses like to masquerade as the program and cause all sorts of operating problems: everything from causing errors on start-up and close-down to overheating the system. I am not suggesting that this is the problem in your case but I would suggest the following -

Put the system into Safe Mode on start-up (F8) and run Malwarebytes or any Anti-Malware that you have on your computer.

Also read this click here - there is a "FREE scan for errors" located at the top of page - use this at you own discretion.
