Windows 7: Dllhost.exe still persist in task manager, taking up cpu memory

Dllhost.exe still persist in task manager, taking up cpu memory

Hi I'm new and I seriously need help I'm at my wits end, I tried everything and nothing works. Tried malware bytes, hitman, rouge killer, clean boot, went into safe mode. Changed codecs for the thumbnails. Nothing works.

The dllhost.exe virus still persist. A temporary fix I found was disabling the network adapter and the virus stops replicating in the task manager, but as soon as I turn it back on the virus starts replicating and takes up cpu memory

I'm think of backing up my data and do a clean install to get rid of the stress.

it can take weeks to clean a virus and even then you can never be 100% it's gone completely and it's a lot quicker to reinstall Windows if you can so back up your data and use the below tutorial to reinstall and it's good for retail also

You won't lose your backup on OneDrive or other online services but I also suggest to make a backup to an external hard drive and disconnect it from the computer once it's done. If you do intend to reinstall windows use the below tutorial for a better experience
