    my laptop is driving me nuts. I do alot of travelling for work and my laptop has decided to stop working on other networks.It works fine at home.
    I can connect to the hotels network and I can load webpages for the first minute then all I get is page cannot be displayed. I can still ping addresses at the cmd prompt.
    It works ok in safemode so I figured there was something running that is stopping me from viewing webpages. so I started eliminating processes.
    When I end the "dllhost.exe" process I am able to browse again for another minute then dllhost.exe is back.
    Dllhost is also a running process at home and I can browse all night with no issues.
    the only difference is the dllhost process at home mem usage does not change. on the hotel networks the process' mem usage is constantly growing.

    Any idea's?
