Opening Malwarebytes And Dllhost Warning

Recommended Posts


Firstly, i am using Malwarebytes and Comodo Internet Security together.

Today, when i tried to open the Malwarebytes application, the computer freezes(it is no crash, you can all see the windows system language bar). After pressing ctrl+alt+del, the freezing stops, and i get this message from the Comodo Internet Security application:

DllHost.exe could not be recognized and requests unlimited access to your computer.

COM Surrogate

Unidentified publisher

Security Considerations

The publisher of DllHost.exe has NOT digitally signed their application. Hence the origin of this application should not be trusted. Digital signing helps with verifying the authenticity op applications. If you are unsure, we strongly recommend you press the sandbox button.

What seems to be the problem in here? I have read on the internet that DllHost.exe could be used by malware. Do i have a virus, if not why is this situation happening? And why is DllHost.exe connected with the opening of Malwarebytes?
