Hello rayjayy.

In what OS are you getting this error? This is a Windows Windows 7 forum but we'll help you if we can.

No. But do yourself a favor and dump the content of your taskhost commandlines from time to time and compare it to a dump you do immediately after you get this error message. That will show you what is crashing on you. Taskhost is kinda like the old dllhost.exe -- just a standard shell for utility processes. You see, in the Win31-98 days each process took a certain amount of real (below 640k) memory so if you had a bunch of background procs running as well as a host of forground tasks you could get the dreaded "out of real memory" error. In addition, each task still eats a meg of stack and process memory no matter what it does so it's better to have a single process to hang these processes off of. It's the same principle as svchost.exe for services. I'll get some more detailed instructions on how to do this in a while.

I have been getting this error as well. I hadn't posted it because it seemed like an isolated issue, and frankly it isn't too bothersome; I see no performance decreases.

Interestingly, I installed 6956 on my sister's laptop, and she suddenly started to get the errors as well, so I thought it may have something to do with our installation or software we both use.

We seemed to have started to recieve the error sometime around the last windows update, but I'm not totally sure.

Its a hindrance, but not major.

Still, I'd like to resolve it.

well for one, my windows update isn't in working order in this build; so i'm not too sure about that theory.

and true, it isn't pull-your-hair annoying; so my only hope is to wait for the beta i guess. thanks for letting me know i'm not alone.
