    Dllhost.exe in Windows uses an huge quantity of RAM

    Of late my computer is freezing. This happens each time I try to open a folder containing videos with big size. My dllhost.exe uses a large quantity of RAM. How can I possibly get rid of this problem?

    friend, don't keep large thumbnails in video folder which takes lot of memory. so use details or small icons to view the content.

    OR

    Most probably a malware issue.
    Uninstall any codec pack if installed in your system and run a complete scan using Microsoft Security Essentials

    this will help your system to stay away from malwares..


    happy to assist you

    There is every possibility that the executable file is infected with virus or malware.

    Most of the time the malwares attach themselves with the host programs and runs fake processes to occupy large chunks of memory, and in the process attains its aim of slowing the machine or hang the system leading to a corrupt system at the final stage.

    Install a qualty antivirus--antispyware--malwarebyte, scan and clean the system thoroughly which will take time, and then check the file size and memory used. Things should behave normal.

    Dear friend,

    Dllhost.exe is a file used by Microsoft windows operating systems for managing all DLL based programs. If it is consuming your RAM unnecessary, you can try out the following:
    Make sure that your computer is not infected with virus or malwares. To check this, update your antivirus with latest definitions, and scan your PC thoroughly (full scan). Some viruses use DLL files to infect your PC. Sometime it is not possible for antivirus to remove or scan DLL files during running of Microsoft Windows. In that case, you have to configure a boot time scan with your antivirus. Boot time scan cleans your PC without loading Microsoft Windows. It works after restarting your PC. It also scans the registry in Microsoft Windows.

    It can be a normal process if you are using a older PC, because of low hardware configuration, a big size video can take a long time to run smoothly.

    Thanks!
