  • Hi Vkanwar,

    This problem is usually caused because of codecs and other COM components installed by various software.

    Let’s try following steps to check the issue:

    Step 1:  If you are using DivX or Nero, try to update the software to the latest version.

    Step 2:  You may turn off DEP [Data Execution Prevention] for dllhost.exe

    1. Right click on computer, and click Properties.

    2. Click Advanced System Settings, and then click on Settings.

    3. Select the "Data Execution Protection" tab, and then click the 'Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select' option.

    4. Click the Add button, and then browse to C:\Windows\System32\dllhost.exe

    5. Click Open, click OK on the warning message.

    6. Click Apply/OK.

    If we cannot fix the issue, please test it in Clean boot mode:

    How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista


    If the issue doesn’t appear, you can determine which one can be the cause by using dichotomy in MSconfig. Checking on half of Non-Microsoft service and restart, determining which half of the services cause the issue and repeating to check half of the problematic half services.

    Hope these could be helpful and keep post.
