Hello, I've had several warnings by Norton Security Suite within the past week or two that a trojan has been blocked. However, after the latest trojan block, I soon after received a warning from Norton that COM SURROGATE was using a lot of memory. Upon checking task manager, I counted at least (10) dllhost.exe (com surrogate) in the list. I did a system restore to several days before. So far I haven't noticed any ill effects, but ask for help to determine if I am indeed trouble free. Thank you in advance!
