Not sure what you are trying to ask.

I have that file and it's situated in the proper location, the C:\Windows\System32 folder.

I don't see it among my processes listed in Task Manager...nor do I see it in Services.

dllhost is only called upon when something needs it like an installer. So if it is constantly present, then I would be suspicious of the file.
