Can anyone tell me a little about msissl.exe ? I couldn't find anything on the web.

It's a weird process running on my pc... Checked with process explorer, shows it has no parent process, and listens to port 7209 on TCP.

Is it spyware or something? Spybot doesn't show anything

If you can't find anything on the web that's not normally a good sign. Most likely it's malware. You could try uploading the file at Jotti for analysis.

The bad thing is... i can't find it. There is no msissl.exe in my file system. It says it's running from system32, but it's certainly not there

Make sure that you select to display hidden and system files. In Explorer go Tools > Folder Options > View tab > select "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".
