A jet black window with the title "C:\Windows\system32\DllHost.exe" keeps poping in miniature form (1/5 of my screen). I click on the background and the black window goes away. The 'start bar' can indicate that there are as many as 39 such windows open. Help!

This can be either malware, a corruption of Windows, or a misbehaving program. What have you done recently to the system?

I'd start with these free, online scans:


Let us know the results and we can move on from there.
