Windows hacking itself

Specs: Windows XP
I've been searching through windows, because I know it contains dodgy information (SuperHidden folders containing your personal details and history (doesn't delete when u clear history 'n' stuff)), one thing I found was a log file from 'Silverlight', the statements claimed that silverlight was disabling security, enabling all permissions, and even bypassing built-in security by creating fake certificates. yet I'm more interested in how it 'pretended' to talk to firefox, the first thing firefox asked when Silverlight was hacking my computer was "process ID 456".
Can someone tell me what that process is?

First, for you to better understand what exactly is Silverlight, read THIS.

Yeah, looks like another unsorted bag of nuts 'n' bolts by Windows.

But these (unexplained) facts remains:
It installed itself without my acknowledgment or permission.
It recently installed some version of Visual Basic without my acknowledgment or permission.
The files ARE located in the 'programs' folder, but are in SuperHidden folders.
It loaded almost half a MB of digital certificates from god knows where.
The log file I copied into my Flash card seems to immediately update itself when it connects to my PC (copy over the original log (which regularly updates)).
Silverlight gives itself Admin permissions, and disables security before self updating.

The installation of VB was strange
If you can EXPLAIN what it's doing, please do.
