Do I have the COM Surrogate infection?

Unread postby s9dd » May 10th, 2015, 1:39 pm

I noticed a process that is appearing every 2 or so seconds: dllhost.exe * 32 naming "COM Surrogate" as the description.
AVG does not see an infection.
HitManPro does not see an infection.
MalwareBytes does not see an infection.
But the process appears to be interrupting the GUI thread in Ableton Live 9. And I cannot tell what is causing the process to trigger.

It's Win7x64 box.

I would appreciate some help to find out what is going on.
many thanks

By posting just a description of your problems it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're looking for.

We need to know what's running on your computer so we can give you appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, and which tells you what we need you to post so that we can help you.

This topic will now be closed.

If you still need help, please start a new thread with:

  • FRST.txt
  • Addition.txt
  • Details of your problems.

If for any reason you can't run FRST, please let us know in your post.
