how devastating for OS would be if dllhost.exe would be replaced with dud ?
(just like XP could to get rid of verclsid)
If you want true Windows user experience
try Longhorn builds: 3718, 4029, 4066

Why don't you just try doing it and observe the results?

Life is "trying things to see if they work".

Incorrectly cleaning a virus that "replaces" processes like this (or explorer or whatever) will definately cause problems. I'd say give it a shot in a VM!

Actually, it might just be easier to use ProcExp to pause the dllhost.exe process and see how Windows behaves.

A quick search yields this and this, which I believe are worth reading.

yes, since Vista MS finally moved a lot of code into seperate DLLs and uses DLLhost.exe to run them.
