That file is possibly malware (trojan, worm or whatever). I suggest you generate a HijackThis log and submit to the correct forum for analysis.

can you open up a file search (either from the start menu or with windows key + F) and search for syssvcnt.exe ...and tell us what folder it's located in?

in that location it's PROBABLY NOT malware....i would say that it's part of the authentium security suite that cox uses...have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling the cox suite?
