Hi,
An XP computer I looked at today was running very slow. A look at running processes showed 20 instances of DLLHOST.EXE, some using up to 45,000kb memory or 60% CPU. I end-tasked a number of them but they just restarted a fast as I could sure them down.
Any ideas where to start to resolve this? I haven't a clue.
