Process name: DCOM DLL host process

Product: Windows

Company: Microsoft

File: dllhost.exe

This item can become infected , like most processes -

Recommendation :

Do not "End Task" it as there is no way to determine whether DLLHOST has completed its task or not. For the more advanced users, however, deleting the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Java VM\MSDebug" can often solve the problem of DLLHOST constantly appearing in the Task List. Finally, if you keep getting DLLHOST errors on a Windows 2000/XP/2003 PC, then you may have the Welchia virus.

Basically if it shows no errors then leave it alone -

Thank You -

It has a job to do then it may go away once finished -There is no way to determine whether DLLHOST has completed its task or not -

There is no actual reference to it being an infection , just another process that works then "sleeps" -

Thank You -


dllhost.exe is a process belonging to Microsoft Windows Operating System. The dllhost.exe file manages DLL based applications.

This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

Sorry but scan with A/V and Malwarebytes and if there is no problem then ignore it as part of your system -
