In my particular instance, CID6LNCH.exe is service that starts as a result of the installation of a network fax utility for the Konica Minolta copiers. Comuse Co. LTD is the company that created the utility for Konica Minolta.

I also have this file in my computer CID6LNCH.exe and as Nick M my computer has the network fax utility instaled as we work with Konica Minolta
(07-02-09) I have Konica Minolta's Network Fax program installed on my computer as well and have verified that killing this process affects the software. The process allows you to "print" to the fax software so that you can fax any document from your desktop through a Konica Minolta fax machine, so killing it prevents the software from catching the print command to open the fax dialog box.

I also have seen this after the konica network fax installation.

Best practices for resolving cid6lnch issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with cid6lnch. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
