Remove dllhost.exe *32 COM Surrogate virus (Uninstall Guide)

Multiple dllhost.exe *32 (COM surrogate) instances may indie that your computer is infected with malware, mostly likely a Trojan horse. It could be the Trojan.Poweliks or similar malware. Once your computer is infected, this virus may crte 30 or even more instances of dllhost.exe *32 - COM Surrogate, consume 100% of the processor, and all of RAM. In same cases it consumes memory until crash. What is Trojan Horse software, you may ask? Well, just like the ancient Greek mythological horse that it takes its name from, today's Trojan Horse is something which, despite looking innocent, has actually been designed to do a lot of damage. The wooden horse that the Greeks built was crted to infiltrate the City of Troy and destroy it from within, and in a similar vein, Trojan Horse malware is a program that makes you think it is safe - and then once installed on your computer, will attack you from the inside. If you have a good anti-malware program it will stop this infection right away or if it missed the Trojan dropper then at lst block all the outbound traffic by dllhost.exe *32 virus.

So that the Trojan Horse can infect your PC or laptop you need to install its server function. And it is this that gives this particularly nasty type of malware its name. Because in the Greek tale the Greek army designed the wooden horse to look like a pce offering and presented it as a gift to the people of Troy (but were actually hiding their army inside the horse), modern Trojans also convince you that they're a legitimate appliion that will do you no harm. Unfortunately, as the people of Troy found out when they were attacked as soon as darkness fell, this is simply not the case.

What do Trojan Horses do to computers?

There are a of ways a Trojan Horse can affect you. Some types might harass you with endless pop-up or pop-under adverts for goods or services that you probably have little to no interest in. Annoying yes, but this type of Trojan is the lst of your worries for an incrsingly large proportion of Trojan Horses have been designed to infiltrate your PC to corrupt your data and files. They will prevent you accessing them in some cases, or they might just decide to delete them altogether. And the sickest part? The person who developed the Trojan Horse malware doesn't even gain anything from this – they just do it purely because they can. Now, in this case, dllhost.exe *32 (COM surrogate) instances are usually used to display ads but it may also install spyware on your computer. Everything is done in the background without your knowledge, so there's not other way to spot this malware other than finding multiple instances dllhost.exe processes.

How does a Trojan Horse program get on to my computer?

There are actually a few ways that Trojan Horses can infect your laptop or PC. There are Trojans which come as attachments in spam emails – these will be in the form of .exe files. And there are yet others which will purport to be something useful that you'll stumble across when you’re online. They might be disguised as a fun looking game or even (ironically) as the latest and grtest, must-have new anti-virus program. The Trojan Horse's MO, or Modus Operandi, is to convince you to drop your guard and let it in through your defenses – so it can cause chaos. Just as it did to the good people of Troy.

How do I protect myself from Trojan Horses?

As always you want to ensure you're running a good anti-malware program on your computer. You should also make sure your PC is up to date with the most current security too. Crucially you should be careful when you're downloading programs or appliions. And don't forget the golden rule when dling with spam emails. Don't open them - delete them!
