Hello Bleeping Computer ~


I began noticing my computer running very slowly and on checking task manager for processes, "dllhost.exe com surrogate" shows many to be processing at once and running at 99% CPU usage.  I tried ending the processes but I'm not sure I was ending them or if they kept duplicating.  Should I do system restore?  Or run combo fix?  In safe mode?  Thank you!!
