Over the past couple of weeks I've been noticing a couple of odd symptoms that might be related. First, I am having trouble opening file folders in my desktop or even accessing file folders through the "Windows Explorer" or "My Computer." If I reboot the computer, it solves the problem temporarily, but it always returns.
Also, when I open up my Windows Task Manager, I often notice that the dllhost.exe seems to be consuming a large amount of memory in the Processes section (typically over 260,000 K). I have never seen this happen until recently From what I understand, the SOM Surrogate has some bearing on folder thumbnails, so I would guess these various issues are related.
I am by no means an expert, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
