I have a Toshiba C55D A5120 Laptop with Windows 8.1 and Firefox and recently whenever I open a picture folder I can see all the thumb nails but when I click on a thumb nail it will open the pic and then in a couple of seconds a popup box will appear saying;

 

COM Surrogate has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.

Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is

available.

 

It doesn't do it on all folders  or all pic's, I know COM Surrogate is used by MicroSoft for some reason but I think this may be some form of MalWare or something. An help would be appreciated.

I would have thought someone would have known what this is and how to fix it.Guess new problems come along everyday. Hopefully someone will figure it out and have a fix after the problem has been around a while.
