Hi, thank you in advance for any help you can give :D
Ok, so noticed recently that dllhost.exe has been opening and closing alot. I don't think that it doing this is new though. I think that it probably always did this, I just been noticing it more, cause I got second monitor and now I have task manager open all the time on the second screen, which is why I now see it when it happens.
My question is: Is it normal for it to open and close all the time, it seems to appear in task manager if I open a folder with thumbnails in it, or videos in it, or every time I open a music file. But sometimes it seems to open randomly, when using steam or even when just playing a game ? Although if I just leave the pc idle like nothing is running, it does seem to open less often.
I did Hitman Pro, TDSSKiller, MBAM & hijackthis scans and everything came back clean.
I also checked the file in process exploer and it said it was "(Verified)Microsoft" and the Virustotal mini scan in process explorer also said "0/57" detection. Also the file dictionary is windows/system32. And the file does appear to have a Microsoft digital signature
The reason I ask as well, is that dllhost never used to open as often as this on my old computer, which also had win 7 pro x64, although the new pc has service pack 1 and the old one didn't, could that be why ? Annway, I have a suspicion that this dllhost could be causing micro stutter/poor performance in some games, on the new pc. Just wondering what the likelihood is that dllhost is causing the stutter in some games, so I can rule that out in my quest to solve the micro stuffer in one game particularly.
Thank you for any info you can give.
