dllhost.exe Malware back! FARBAR results attached.


Recommended Posts

Hello.  Came on forum on October 28th with same issue.  dllhost.exe running about 20 instances and eating up memory.  Problem seemed fixed on October 28th through this forum, but it must have been buried deep because it is back.  Noticed problems with my screen saver, Avira antivirus doing weird things and my wireless adapter flashing crazily.  Checked Task Manager and sure enough, the dllhost.exe COM surrogate is replicating and bogging down my computer.  I hope that's all it's doing..... Anyway, I ran the FARBAR utility and am attaching the FRST and ADDITION results to see if maybe someone can help get rid of this dang malware once and for all.  In the meantime, I'm going to unhook from the internet until tomorrow to see if there's a reply from a moderator in case there's something nasty going on with this malware infection.  Thanks, Todd.

Hello, any moderator willing to take a look at the malware problem with my computer?  Malwarebytes cannot seem to stop this problem.  I cannot copy and paste to this forum for some reason, but I have attached the FRST.txt and Addition.txt to the above post if those will help....


Please let me know if this problem is possible to be solved.  Really don't want to go to the whole trouble of reinstalling Windows 7 64-bit again....

Hello twrauch! My name is Borislav and I will be glad to help you solve your malware problem.

Please note:

  • If you are a paying customer, you have the privilege to contact the help desk at Consumer Support. If you choose this option to get help, please let me know.
  • I recommend you to keep the instructions I will be giving you so that they are available to you at any time. You can save them in a text file or print them.
  • Make sure you read all of the instructions and fixes thoroughly before continuing with them.
  • Follow my instructions strictly and don’t hesitate to stop and ask me if you have any questions.
  • Post your log files, don't attach them. Every log file should be copy/pasted in your next reply.
  • Do not perform any kind of scanning and fixing without my instructions. If you want to proceed on your own, please let me know.
Step 1
  • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Go to Update tab and select Check for Updates. If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Go to Scanner tab and select Threat Scan, then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
Extra Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer,please do so immediately.

Step 2

Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop.

NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST/FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system

Run FRST/FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.

If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.

When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please post it to your reply.

In your next reply, post the following log files:

  • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware log
  • fixlog log
