9 posts in this topic

how devastating for OS would be if dllhost.exe would be replaced with dud ?

(just like XP could to get rid of verclsid)

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.
