Dear expert,

I hope this message finds you well.


I've been experiencing some unexplainable delays and crashes with my PC for about a whole year now.  Was running on Windows 10, and since I've noticed something weird my PC, I've tried changing the HDD, SSD, GPU, PSU, and reinstalled OS, even downgrading to Window 7 (OEM code purchased through scdkey.com), but I can't seem to get rid of that weird slow delays and disconnections no matter what I try.  


I've been trying to take note of anything suspicious in my taskmanager, and I am seeing a dllhost.exe file that is not from the system folder appear and disappear, only when I connect online. 

I'm not too sure where to begin - could you kindly help/guide me through this issue?


Thank you for your time.



So glad to have found you guys. 

Truthfully, I've never taken internet-related threats seriously, but recently, I'm starting to believe that this world is not as nice as it seems...


Long story short, my PC/Phone/tablet/etc, all devices connected to my router have been acting weird, and weeks and months of re-installing OS, running virus/malware related software, and researching online led me here. 

No problems are identified, yet I know something isn't right, and wanted to reach out to your team, as this is not something I am able to handle...


Seriously, thank you for what you guys do.
