The taskhost.exe process is a generic host process and it is responsible for running .dll files and not .exe files. The taskhost process performs a check on ‘Services’ upon system boot and searches the registry to compile a list of associated .dll files necessary for each service. If necessary, the process will load the files and allow them to function correctly.
