Usually I have 40 to 42 processes listed in Task Manager, After this months patch updates, there are a few more listed. One I noticed was mscorsvw.exe (NET Runtime Optimization Service). Usually, after the monthly updates, it will run for a while, the go away. Another is dllhost.exe (COM Surrogate). Is this anything to be concerned about?

Hello,

Probably normal,

Lets look at the task manager in case.

Click start> search and type cmd, right click on the returned cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" at the prompt>>> type or (copy paste) the text in the code box below into the command prompt window
echo > 0 & tasklist /v >> 0 & net start >> 0 & notepad 0
press enter on your keyboard.
A log file in note pad will be created on the desktop.
Post all of the notepad outcome in your next reply.

Hello,

Nothing out of the ordinary.

On you other post I'm not sure why windows patch Tuesday takes so long although I suspect others have the same issue.
