COM SURROGATE issue

Hi all:

I have been having a COM SURROGATE issue in my 3 recent windows installation (Windows 8 Po, Windows Ultimate 64 bits, Windows Home Premium 64 bits).

I am only using now Windows Home Premium 64 bits and I still get the infamous COM SURROGATE windows from time to time.

It may be related to another issue I am experiencing and about which I have posted here: Windows Explorer not working: left pane freezes and can't browse files

The COM SURROGATE message I get is the following (sorry, guys, my system is in Spanish):

Firma con problemas:
Nombre del evento de problema: APPCRASH
Nombre de la aplicación: DllHost.exe
Versión de la aplicación: 6.1.7600.16385
Marca de tiempo de la aplicación: 4a5bc6b7

Appreciate any help to fix it or make it less annoying if possible!
Thank you!!

Regrettably, I couldn't deactivate DEP for dllhost.exe .

I get a windows message saying that "DEP attributes cannot be established in 64-bits executable files" (translation)

I haven't upgraded Intel display drivers neither.

Thinking about doing a system repair with my system recovery disks.

Any other ideas, very welcomed.

Cheers

Hi all:

I finally opted for reinstalling the O.S. again.
Took a long time, but now my laptops are working well.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Deactivate DEP for dllhost.exe in this folder instead, if the errors return.

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dllhost.exe
