    Hi all,
    I keep getting the "com surrogate not working" error whenever I try to look at a picture in Windows 8.1. I have tried a few fixes (disable DEP for dllhost.exe), but I am still getting the error. I am trying to avoid doing the "refresh your PC" thing if I do not have to. Any advice will be much appreciated. Thank you!
    Chris

    the statement: "whenever I try to look at pictures" is far too vague, you need to be much more descriptive and explain exactly what you are doing and how when the error comes up

    When I try to view a photo from any folder in Windows, I get the error.
    Click on pictures
    Click on a folder
    Click on a file
    "Com Surrogate has stopped working" error.
