What to do if Com Surrogate has Stopped Working?

While browsing files through my computer, the error “COM Surrogate has stopped working” appears and this will cause folders to stop appearing in windows explorer, right clicks menus to not appear. Then, I’ll manually have to end the process ‘dllhost.exe*32’ for everything to work properly again - only for the same error message to appear again.
any help?
