    I realised (or it was just added) i have a
    Browseui.dll
    listed in the Hooks section of ProSecurity (C:Windows\System32).
    I've checked: it's not the Backdoor.Spymon by all means,but the legitimate
    system file.

    I dont remember when or how i gave this privilege and i couldnt find exaustive explanations about its role ,but, at any rate
    my question is IF there's any reason for it to stay there.

    Or, should i remove it from the Hooks permissions?

    Please don't worry about this, it's only a normal dll module of windows that contain a hook module. We even ignore this dll files in all eariler versions, but at finally we decide to give user all controls to any program(dll module).

    Thank you very much for your intervention PSDeveloper, i wont worry about it anymore.
    Could you please tell me what could be achieved by right clicking Action on a hook and deciding to Block/Allow for instance?
    I'd like to show you the full screen of my Hook list:

    Don't worry, all of these hook modules belong to Windows, you can allow these modules.
