    I just noticed that every time when I start my PC there are 4 (sometimes more) processes called dllhost.exe with a description COM Surrogate.
    Process hacker shows me that all of them have a command line like:
    C:\Windows\system32\DllHost.exe /Processid:{49A33422-EFF8-4925-805C-A476750C24DE}
    So I don't know what to do. Sometimes it appears more processes like that and all of them have the same call
    C:\Windows\system32\DllHost.exe /Processid:{49A33422-EFF8-4925-805C-A476750C24DE}

    I checked registry trying to locate the meaning of
    and I found a few strokes
    one in HCR\AppID\{49A33422-EFF8-4925-805C-A476750C24DE}
    inside there is only one key DllSurrogate
    There is one branch in HCR\CLSID\{49A33422-EFF8-4925-805C-A476750C24DE}\
    With key AppID with data:
    and also there one branch
    with key
    (Default) with data:

    So I guess the meaning of 49A33422-EFF8-4925-805C-A476750C24DE is

    I checked through the virus total and it is not a virus but could you tell me what this dll doing and why there are many dllhost.exe processes called with the same command line
    C:\Windows\system32\DllHost.exe /Processid:{49A33422-EFF8-4925-805C-A476750C24DE}
    Thank you in advance for any help and explanation.
