    I'm seeing the DllHost.exe process start during ESS 4.0 updater and it stays running till I kill it in the Task Manager or reboot.

    Open the tray icon, press f5 for advanced setup, and select no updates as in the screenshoot and see if that helps.

    I got ya.

    Did some reading about DllHost.exe. ESS 4.0's new System Update Tool uses it to check if there are any available or missing Windows Updates. Not a bad thing to have. Wish the ESET engineers would put out a fix to shut down DllHost.exe when it's finished with it. I heard it's not a good idea to kill it in the Task Manager. Maybe I'll do up a .bat file for myself to shut it down.

    Blah...LOL

    More curious than anything else.
