Com surrogate



There's a possible solution below of turning off DEP for dllhost, which might not work for everybody. You may have to add divx+nero executables to the DEP ignore list.
  • Essentially, turning off Data Execution Prevention on dllhost (the COM surrogate) can fix this problem for some people. This solution is detailed below.
Right click on Computer, and choose Properties
Click on Advanced System Settings, and then under Advanced, click Settings
Select the "Data Execution Protection" tab, and then click Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select .
Click on the Add button, and then browse to C:\Windows\System32\dllhost.exe as shown
Click Open, and then OK.
Here's what you should see…

''COM surrogate has stopped working.................


Sir COM means "Component Object Model". These are basically DLL files which are used for system tasks and if they get corrupted then you get same problem. For solving this you need to repaid your windows using windows disk.

Error message: "COM Surrogate has stopped working."

COM objects are often defined in Dynamic Link Libraries (DLL files). The Program file for COM Surrogate is actually dllhost.exe that can load a DLL and make its objects available to other programs.

The COM Surrogate error message is often related to codecs and other COM objects that aren't fully compatible with Vista. These are installed by other programs. The most common culprits are DivX and Nero. The first thing you should do is upgrade to the latest versions of these to see if that fixes the problem. Another possible fix is to disable thumbnail previews in Explorer. To do that:
In Windows Explorer, click Organize, then select Folder and Search Options
Click the View tab
Check the box that says "Always show icons, never thumbnails"
Click OK
To help troubleshoot which codec(s) might be causing the problem, you can use a free tool called InstalledCodec. You can use it to disable individual codecs one at a time.
You can download it at http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/installed_codec.html


Hope that helps

Take the jumper off restart shut down and then put it back on again

or

remove the CMOS battery from system board and boot once after booting shutdown your system and insert the battery back, again start your system and press F1 next time it won't ask you for pressing F1. reset your BIOS after that (time,date,etc.)

Try these one should work.

Please let me know.
