Hi guys,

I'm having a lot of trouble with my laptop. It's very slow, and I constantly see 1 or more dllhost.exe Com Surrogate on my task manager. I didn't clue in to this until recently, and it's at a stage where it already shut down my computer once and it's running very slow now. Malwarebytes isn't picking it up. I did a scan, as well as with HitmanPro, but all I got was tracking cookies.

Please help me as soon as you can. What steps do I need to take? I didn't want to touch the registry manually because I wouldn't know what I'm doing.

I did a scan with RogueKiller, I've attached the log. Don't know if this helps at all, I can't see anything.


Thanks
