Yes will need to update your virus checker to detect this as the virus renames its self to this file

I suggest you look at this page FIRST before deleting a CORE WINDOWS FILE! :rolleyes:


Please Note: There is a perfectly legitimate system file with filename DLLHOST.EXE. Typically, the legimate file is only approximately 5-6 kB.
