    Hi Arothgar:wave:
    If you are posting from the malfunctioning machine, it seems you are not terribly disrupted.
    Please let us know more about your situation...
    Hardware details, and running software (including security {firewall, av, etc}, and anything set to run at the startup).
    Have you had any BSOD events? If so, you could visit this forum,
    http://www.techspot.com/vb/menu46.html
    When you do, read the two stickies at the top.
    After following those directions post in the same forum per the instructions.

    Unless you have malware on board, DllHost.exe is an essential process for Windows.
    If you put it in DEP it will prevent windows from functioning properly.
    The question is, why has DllHost.exe "stopped working".
    Being unable to rename or run HJT could possibly be a sign of malware.
    I would recommend that you visit our forum here... http://www.techspot.com/vb/menu28.html
    and pay close attention to the four stickies at the top.
    You should read all of them, before beginning the 8-step Preliminary Removal Instructions.
    When you have done the 8-steps, make your post in that forum...
    Bobbye or Broni (or ???) will get to you as quickly as they can.
    Once we have determined you have a clean system, and if BSOD does not apply are are resolved, if you still have problems, then repost here.

    That is how I suggest you approach the problem.
    I hope this helps.
