    Thanks for the suggestion, Hydrate. I followed your suggestion and still no luck.

    I tried a couple of other things too. I disabled thumbnail view, and the problem persisted. I tried creating a new user account. When I log into the new user account, everything works fine... no problem--so it doesn't seem like it's a system-rooted problem. I looked at some of the log files too, but again, I'm kind of lost in knowing what to look for and how to interpret it.
    Let me clarify, in a new user account, the dllhost.exe issue does not exist?

    After trying a number of things over the past few weeks, I finally did something that solved it... the fix was one of these three things, but I'm not sure which:

    Uninstalled Acronis 2017 (I'll reinstall it and see if the problem returns)
    Updated Visual Studio Community 2017
    Ran subinacl.msi to reset proper ACLs on system folders

    Wow... tricky one to solve!

    Wow, well, if we can get specifics let us know about this issue further, most likely an issue with ACLs.

    Thanks for your help, Hydrate. You're probably right... what led me to the resetting proper ACLs was some peculiar error messages in the Windows log files indicating an inability to access these files.

    Wouldn't rule out a bug in Visual Studio, tho, since it's still a fairly new release.

    I'll at least post here if the reinstall of Acronis proves to be trouble free.

    Hi. I just had the exact same problem and thanks to this thread, uninstalling Acronis True Image 2017 solved the problem. To the OP or anyone else, did you ever reinstalled the program? I am hesitant to do so.

    Forget Acronis, go with Macrium Reflect (free or Premium).
