    What is Background Task Host?

    Just saw this in RH. Can someone explain what it is? Is it a huge issue?

    It's a signed ms file used to run DLLs as long as it's in the correct folder it's can be CPU intensive

    Since CortanaUI would point to audiovisual factors, this would lead to microphone input, speaker output and/or graphics interface. I would then explore these settings and drivers. And maybe correlate the crash time with specific live event.

    If it is just a one-off, I would ignore it.

    Thanks very much. How can you tell it points to audio visual factors?
