for the past couple days my desktop and status menu bar and task bar have been blinking, nothing shows up for a few seconds and then comes back. like it's restarting. i cant keep my documents like computer folders or flash drive folders open, after it "restarts" again they all close. I checked the task manager keeps displaying this process, that appears and reappears constantly. only when the blinking or what have you happens. I can't end this task file as it keeps reappearing regardless. I'm not sure if it's a virus or a problem in general. The task process that keeps reappearing is dllhost.exe something and is described as a com surrogate

Installing Process Explorer from Microsoft will help you identify what is actually running behind the generic name and like Task Manager, will allow you to stop processes.
I would also recommend update and run your Antivirus program on it's most detailed settings, but after it is completed, run Malwarebytes (free version) to help make sure that you are clean of all types of nasties.
If that does not help, run System Restore to a date before you began having this problem.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
