    I had the dllhost.exe worm/virus/malware, what-ever it is, on my computer. i knew where it came from right away and deleted those files. My cpu was dragging, 100% cpu usuage. had like 5 minutes every time i restarted to find the issue. took all night but i had found that dllhost.exe was running super fast and that there were 2 of them. well, i terminated them both and that ended my problem.... almost. i'm into pc games sometimes and i went to play rome total war and it would not save at all. so i uninstalled it, then reinstalled it. it saved the 1st time, then the same error message "cannot save on disk" popped up. i guess i could have posted this in a different forum but i think it's related to my previous problem. i read into it quite a bit recently and i'm pretty sure only one of those dllhosts was the problem while the other was safe and needed for proper cpu management. only weird thing is i got another program files folder. its called "program files (x86)" thought that was strange so i included it. also i forget which one it is, but when i had a program in one of those program files folders it would not run at all claiming it wasn't even on my computer. this issue isn't too serious because i know my computer isn't in horrible shape but i hope i don't have to do major changes in order to get dllhost up and running, because from what i read, i need it running. any assistance with this issue is appreciated. thank you.
