dllhost.exe *32 is using all my memory
Posted on 2014-02-25
I have a PC with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. It is running very slowly. Even though I have disabled all startup items and non-Microsoft services in MSCONFIG, it is still using over 4 GB of it's 6 GB of installed memory. Most of the processes are listed as:
dllhost.exe *32. I counted over 25 of these and the description says "COM Surrogate" for every one.
Does anybody know how I can find out what really is "dllhost.exe *32" "COM Surrogate", why they are using so much memory and, most importantly, how to turn them off?
