Dllhost.exe concerns

Last response: in Windows 7

When I open up task manager, there's the normal dllhost.exe initalized by SYSTEM and then, whenever I open anything and sometimes randomly, another instance opened initialized by my user name appears and disappears. I ended the ComsysApp service and the first dllhost.exe stopped appearing, but the other one still keeps popping up. Is this normal? It's located under system32 when I ever I choose to go to it's location from task manager.

It is a file without information about the maker of this file. It is not a Windows core file. Program listens for or sends data on open ports to LAN or Internet. The program has no visible window. The file is an unknown file in the Windows folder. comsysapp.pif is able to record inputs. Therefore the technical security rating is dangerous.

Open a command prompt (start run type cmd press enter) type
sc delete "SwPrv"
sc delete "COMSysApp"
press enter, type exit and press enter to exit the command prompt

Is this file still present or did your av program remove it ?
