Fixing dllhost.exe Constant CPU Usage And Memory Leak

A long ago we shared a solution for "Windows 7 Lock-up While Using Windows Photo Viewer" which involved dllhost.exe's incompatibility with Kaspersky Antivirus. I recently faced a similar issue where Microsoft's genuine dllhost.exe file was constantly using 25% of CPU with ever increasing RAM (a memory leak) consumption, this time it was not the Kaspersky incompatibility causing the issue but a Windows 7 bug how it handles thumbnail generation. The reason for the issue was a broken video download on my Desktop, Windows was trying to generate thumbnail for that broken/incompatible video file and failing causing the constant CPU usage - the solution was to simply delete the problematic file or move it to a inner folder in which case the problem will occur only when accessing that particular folder.

Google Patents Advertisement Powered Taxi's Offering Free Rides To Users

Google has been awarded the patent for an ad-powered taxi service, the patent describes a service from Google where it would allow advertisers to offer customers a free ride to their place of business. Google will be flexing its targeting capabilities to locate the user's current location and display "free ride" advertisement either via cell phone or from a stationary kiosk in a public area. The highly targeted ads would also track how often you use (by asking Google account authorization before giving free ride) the discounted or free transportation to make a purchase, and if found using too many free rides without buying something, do not offer you a free ride next time. The users can also offer additional information about themselves and who else is with them to get better recommendations from advertisers. For example, a family looking for a free-ride to a restaurant and advertisers bidding against each other just like Google Adwords to get them to their place, advertisers would also be able to better target offers (like free deserts for kids) using your purchase history and other factors in the user's profile.
