Recently, my home pc began experiences very high usage, effectively rendering the pc useless.  I do notice in the Task Manager windox, there are multiple (15-20) sessions of dllhost.exe running.  I have been unable to do much research on this issue as the high usage makes accessing the internet virtually impossible. 


The little information I was able to obtain leads me to believe I will need to run some sort of diagnostic/analytical script.  With such a slow speed, will I even be able to get something like that done?




Any help to get me on the road to recovery would be greatly appreciated.

I would suggest creating a topic in the Am I Infected? section as your description matches that of an infection becoming increasingly common nowadays.
