"dllhost.exe (COM Surrogate)" is a Windows Server 2008 system executable program that is used to load needed COM DLL files that are used by Windows system and application programs.

dllhost.exe allows COM objects (dll files) to be loaded and running in dllhost.exe instead of running in the original program where it is needed. This is to reduce the risk of crashing the original program when the COM object fails.

Detailed information on "dllhost.exe" program:
