DLLHost.exe

DllHost has taken over my unity machine. Yesterday I unistalled and then reinstalled IIS to fix a problem with accessing different web pages on unity. However yesterday and today this DLLhost process keeps reering it ugly head and taking all of the unity's resources. I stop it but it come back. Any Ideas<br><br><br><br>

Re: DLLHost.exe

What version of Unity? What OS? What Service Packs?

The DLLHost.exe is used by COM+ services. Have you installed something on your Unity server that is non-standard.

The DLLHost.exe process is always running as a host for Com+ applications to run. It is part of the OS.

Here is a link to an article about it on MSDN-

Re: DLLHost.exe

I am running 2.4.6.102, windows 2000 and service pack 2. I am not running anything but unity on that box, however we are running an antivirus do you think that might be an issue? also I just recieved an e-mail from a tac engineer who gave me this link

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_callmg/3_0/rel_note/301cmrel.htm

Which tells me what to do if it happens. However it does not really say what to do to prevent it.

thanks

Re: DLLHost.exe

The TAC document applies more the Unity 3.0 and not the version you are running.
Have you installed Active Directory? If yes, then that might be causing issues.
Which Anti Virus package are you running? One way to check if the AV package is causing problems is to just remove it or disable it and see if problems go away.
