Windows 7: Com Surrogate keeps opening and closing

Com Surrogate keeps opening and closing

Hello, I tried google for the problem that I have but I couldnt get a fix on this.
I noticed that there was something loading in the background so I kept an eye on the task manager process. The process Com Surrogate keeps loading and closing every few minutes. It opens for a few seconds and closes. Ive read that it has something to do with thumbnails which I disabled to see if it would do anything but did not. I scanned my computer with my anti virus, malware, and spybot. All the scans came out clean with no issues. Its been doing this for the past few days.

Com surrogate comes on at anytime. I had the computer on idle after a restart with task manager open and it still loads it. I can be browsing the web or just idle and it will open and close itself in the task manager. I also did a clean boot but with no luck, it just opens and closes itself every few minutes.
