Hello and good day.

 

So, I've got these 2 dllhost.exe files running in my PC when I'm not looking at "processes from all users". When I do go into the task manager they vanish within 3 seconds and the number of processes running goes down by 2, as it should. It appears they don't use much memory (~2050 K and ~1750 K) and they appear to be in the c:\windows\system32 folder. But, the performance hit is visible when running a game. Unplayable with taskmgr closed and playable/smooth fps when it's open. Also, while searching how to fix the issue on my own I've seen the dllhost files only once on "process explorer" when I first ran the program after reading about it somewhere. The two files blinked red for a few seconds in the process explorer, showed an error when hovering over them, disappeared from process explorer forever; so there's that if it helps. Made quick scans (not running safe mode) with malwarebytes free, mbar, and mse, didn't help. I've also noticed a 8KB dllhst3g.exe right under the dllhost.exe in c:\windows\system32.

 

Looking forward for your support. Thanks in advance. :)
