    You cant expect to run IIS without dllhost.exe

    dllhost is the COM+ hosting process controls processes in the Internet Information Services (IIS) and is used by many programs. It loads .NET Runtime for example. There can be multiple instances of DLLhost.exe. (got from a site :-) )

    make sure that the dllhost.exe file is located in the C:\Windows\System32 folder. In other cases, dllhost.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm!

    Check the memory usage of the dllhost.exe. Are you running any applications in IIS on this server?

    Yes, I run .NET application. It will great increase the memory size then the IIS will dead. Any other application can monitor and auto reset this process?
