press Ctrl+Shift+Esc
click on performance TabSheet
and tell how many Grid blocks in the upper part of window you see (CPU usage history)?
And what does CPU usage peak-meter show?

That folder is not part of the system

dllHost.exe is windows based application but virus with the same name also exists. Regular windows application is stored in

c:\windows\system32

and virus create folder

c:\windows\system32\wins
and store itself in it. If you don't see it, your explorer is set not to show hidden files.

It is usually stored on that location so if that folder exists virus's presence is obvious. You have an active process called dllHost.exe

Check disk with some anti virus software
