  • Error message "Com Surrogate has stopped working"

    Original title: popup Windows Com Surrogate has stopped working? What dose that mean? Also computer very slow suggestions?

    This popup comes in at any time and have noticed the computer has been running for extremelyslow. Also Windows will open programs without asking for confirmation. When I run analysis said updates I'm uptodate and the functioning of the system. Any suggestions?


    Com Surrogate has stopped working:

    Were there any changes (hardware or software) to the computer before the show?

    Start the computer in safe mode and see if the problem persists. If the issue is not perist in safe mode, and then put the computer to boot and see if the problem still occurs.

    Step 1: Safe mode starts Windows with a limited set of files and drivers. Startup programs do not work in safe mode, and only the basic drivers needed to start Windows are installed.

    Step 2: to help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Note: follow step 7 to reset the computer to start as usual after the boot process.

    Computer running extremely slow:

    Perform the steps in the article mentioned below and check if the problem persists.

    I have COM surrogate has stopped working in my photo gallery

    Hi kenneth,.

    Do you know when this problem started?  Try a system restore to a point in time BEFORE the problem started.  Here is the procedure:  Don't forget to check the box to show more than 5 days of restore points.  If the first attempt fails, then try an earlier point or two.  NOTE: You will need to re - install any software and updates that you have installed between now and the restore point, but you can use Windows Update for updates.

    If this does not work or you do not have a restore point will come back enough, check out the following article on this error and a few solutions:

    If that doesn't work, first make sure that Vista is up-to-date on all service packs and updates and then try the new Windows Live Photo Gallery Windows Essentials: who can not only solve the problem, but can improve your experience with her because she is improved and strengthened.

    I hope this helps.

    Gooc luck!

  • "COM Surrogate has stopped working"

    OP: COM Surrogate
    How can I get laughs at the pop up message "COM Surrogate has stopped working '?  What is it???  How should I do?

    Here's the resolution that I found to work for me on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit computer.

    Boot from a live CD and remove dllhost.exe "C:\Windows\Syswow64."

    I did not remove dllhost.exe to the System32 folder.

  • Com Surrogate "has stopped working" what installation police FTT on C drive under Vista 32 bit?

    Last night, I acquired and scanned [for security issues] 3 font TTF files to install in the C:\Windows\Fonts folder as usual.

    The first two fonts went fine, BUT the third "Berlin Email schéma" police threw up an error Com Surrogate "has stopped working".

    As I said, I scanned the font files before any attempt to copy/install the...

    I also ran a complete check & repair on drive C, last night, with no reported errors / bad sectors.

    Now, I am running a full analysis of McAfee on my computer - which I doubt will lift up to the top of questions, but I try to be thorough.

    Despite Com Surrogate, I have no problem display of media files, or opening files / media such as MP3s and JPEG playback.

    Any suggestions? I don't want to run with a fixable problem unless I have to... and I would rather have back the possibility to install fonts for my graphics work [I have about 10 fonts plus the basic package provided by Microsoft, so far, so I'm not clog the system!]

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Thanks for the response - in fact, I had tried the 2nd suggestion, after reading the other sons of COM Surrogate. It did not work.

    However, in the pack of fonts that I downloaded, I noticed that it contained files of the Foundation as well as TTF versions... Curiosity got to me and police OTF files installed correctly [and work properly in Word and Photoshop] without these errors.

    I can only imagine files TTF for 'Berlin Email' to Peter Wiegel variations of police [medium, outline etc.] that are widely available on the net must be correctly written. Although his records from OTF to the same fonts are very good [that are police records I have of other 3rd-party designer-programmers, installed on the same day].

    As each disk check, the repair process, scanning and virus check is 100% clean, and all media connectedness files I use work perfectly, I'm 99.9% sure that it was a font error codes file and not any form of operating system error.

    So my DEP settings are left on during all programs without exception, and I don't see any more errors.

  • "COM Surrogate has stopped working" - error when browsing photos on the new version of Windows 7

    Just built a new pc and installed Windows 7, everything works fine but whenever I browse photos using the photo viewer, it freezes and opens with "COM Surrogate has stopped working" (after 10-20 photos - happens every time).

    I read online about possible errors - I do not have Nero or DivX installed so cannot include those. I also can not disable Protection for the execution of the data for dllhost.exe is 64-bit Windows, so it will not allow him.

    Any help would be much appreciated: it's very frustrating!

    If you have a laptop with optimus or ati changegraphic, you must add the dllhost.exe to the graphics card performance. After that it should be to fix the problem.
