Windows 7: dllhost.exe crash / com surrogate

When you run Photoshop CS3 on a computer with a 64-bit processor (such as a, Intel Xeon processor with EM64T, AMD Athlon 64, or Opteron processor) running a 64-bit version of the operating system (Windows XP Professional x64 Edition or Windows Vista 64-bit) and with 4 GB or more of RAM, Photoshop will use 3 GB for it's image data. You can see the actual amount of RAM Photoshop can use in the Let Photoshop Use number when you set the Let Photoshop Use slider in the Performance preference to 100%. The RAM above the 100% used by Photoshop, which is from approximately 3 GB to 3.7 GB, can be used directly by Photoshop plug-ins (some plug-ins need large chunks of contiguous RAM), filters, or actions. If you have more than 4 GB (to 6 GB), then the RAM above 4 GB is used by the operating system as a cache for the Photoshop scratch disk data. Data that previously was written directly to the hard disk by Photoshop is now cached in this high RAM before being written to the hard disk by the operating system. If you are working with files large enough to take advantage of these extra 2 GB of RAM, the RAM cache can speed performance of Photoshop. Additionally, in Windows Vista 64-bit, processing very large images is much faster if your computer has large amounts of RAM (6-8 GB).
how much RAM u got?

You don't know what you're missing when you can actually utilize large amounts of memory

Haha... that's my HP DL580 G5 at work. It runs 10 Virtual Servers, ranging from Exchange front ends, SharePoint, Terminal Services, and a GUI app for a Unix server, plus a few other things. What's more exciting, is the fact that I still have 30 available DIMMs on my motherboard for more memory

Anyway's, ill have to hook my 6801 build computer back up and uninstall CS3 and see if that is the issue.

I might just wait for the download on 6956 to finish first though.

As far as I know they don't. But since this is just for play/testing it doesn't really matter if its 32 or 64 to me.

I just installed 6801 x64, I too am getting the error 2x, bleh, I uninstalled nero 8, and CS4.

Update: I installed Nero v.9.0.9.4b, no more errors. Then I re-installed CS4, but only chose photoshop (64 and 32 bit versions) and nothing else from the suite. I'm not getting the error anymore, but photoshop now seems to hang on load.

I did also install K-Lite Codec Pack 64-bit, prior to uninstalling, as on another site I read the error may also be related to divx. http://www.codecguide.com/klcp_64bit.htm
