    So the strangest thing is happening. Whenever I go to my Download folder windows loads up Dllhost.exe which starts using 10-15% of CPU and will keep chewing up all sorts of ram. I caught it once using 2 gig of Ram... I Ran the Symantec Trojan. Poweliks removal tool and it came up clean. It's really strange that this one specific folder is triggering the Dllhost.exe to open..

    Thoughts ? Suggestions ?

    EDIT: Found the issue. I had a hunch it was something to do with this
    360 spherical video I downloaded from You Tube. I guess there was something about the file that Windows didn't like, or was trying to generate a preview. Really bizarre.
