    Two "COM Surrogates" that will not close


    There is two Com surrogates in task manager, they normally used to close automatically when I opened task manager, but now they stay open at all times. Screenshot: Screenshot by Lightshot

    Just for the record, you never responded to all the suggestions given to you regarding your last issue here:

    Weird drivers in Windows 8 Device Manager

    and now you are exploring yet another issue? In fact, one forum member provided such a detailed response, that seemed so appropriate, I actually repped him because you did not even bother to say thank you.

    Thanks for letting me know, I hadn't checked my email for replies until just a few minutes ago, I marked it as solved and gave chev65 rep point
