Hello to all..............Anyone know why a cow patty splatters more when it hits the ground than a bull patty?  (I guess this is ok) Just want to say i like this site.   Everyone has seen this in there Task Manager..."dllhost.exe". Have you ever seen multiple ones that you can't catch with your mouse?

Welcome scare

The true dllhost.exe file is a safe Microsoft Windows system process, called "COM Surrogate".

 

It depends on where it is located if it is malware. To explore further,if you think you have malware.post in Am I Infected.

 

To just find out about the Task Manager issue, post in the Operating system forum that matches yours.

Hello and thanks for reply. When i first turn on TM (task manager) i'll have three dillhost.exe running. When i try and click on them two will leave and one will stay and show a service and path. Turn TM off and right back on and the other two are back. If i move mouse anywhere in TM and try to click on one they both leave. I can leave TM on and they never appear. Soon as i turn off and back on they will be running in TM agin. As long as i don't move mouse they stay utill you try and catch them. I have tryed these different scanners (MSE,Malwarebytes, windows malicious software removal tool, super antispyware, microsoft safety scanner, check dics and also google but find nothing. Am now having performance degregation. OS windows 7 hp service pack1, IE 10, MSE. Any clues for a total novice?

Hi! As to the bull/cow patty thing, that's an interesting question! I think Ozzy would say "don't ask me, I don't know!"

 

I'll stick with that.

 

Sorry I couldn't be more informative!

Hello Scare,

 

Per the cow patty, it's probably a matter of moisture content. We'll have  to consult a bovine specialist to account for the difference in moisture content.

Hi aogwald. Naw, moisture content does not come into play here.
