Hello,

My PC is running several processes of dllhost.exe *32 when I open the task manager. When i try to close them they come back, They also come back even if i restart my PC.

 

They eat up the PC resources.

Hello,

please run Combofix:


Please download Combofix (by sUBs) and save it to your Desktop.
  • Disable the realtime-protection of your antivirus and anti-malware programs because they might interfere with the scan.
  • Start Combofix.exe and follow its instructions.
  • Do not use the computer while the scan is running. This may cause the program to stall.
  • When finished, a log file will be displayed (that can also be found at C:\Combofix.txt).
    Please copy and paste the contents of this file into your next post.
Note: If you receive an error "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion." after the scan, just restart the computer.
(You can find more detailed instructions in this guide on using Combofix.)

I haven't heard from you for some time.
Do you still need help?

Hey aharonov,
i installed some utilities on my pc from bleeping computer and it seems to be fine now, its been quite a few days without it coming back. I think the program that worked the best was the combofix, I just kept trying the different utilities and finally that one worked, I really appreciate you taking your time to help me and others fixing pcs.
