  1. Hey, I have heard about this "COM Surrogate", and it seems that I am infected... I noticed it being in my processes, and popping up again when I stopped it, after a while of course. I am really worried that my personal information might go to the wrong hands, And I am not sure can Malware Bytes see it. Just in case, if Malware bytes Doesn't find it, I have located its "homeplace", the dllhost.exe in the System32 folder, so I am not going to touch it. I have gathered some information so far: Size of it 19 264 bytes. (dllhost.exe) Size (on disk) 20 480 bytes. (dllhost.exe) "How it behaves" For my knowledge, it just pops up in my Tasks. If I don't do anything, it will disappear, after a while, re-appear. Infected file(s?): - dllhost.exe [C:\Windows\System32\] Process name: "COM Surrogate" Currently programs ran with it: Adwcleaner (4.206) Malware bytes [Free] RKill Avast (Latest) Can anybody help me with this current situation? I am really worried!
