Windows explorer has stopped working / Host process for windows services stopped

Q: Windows explorer has stopped working / Host process for windows services stopped

Hey,
I was wondering if anyone could help me?  I have been having a lot of issues with my computer and using the internet. I keep getting messages such as ‘windows explorer has stopped working ‘and ‘Host process for windows services stopped working’. I haven’t been able to stream videos (with the exception of youtube),  download certain programs and browsing sites is slow.  I remember my computer being fine until a window update but I don’t know if that’s a coincidence or not.  I have tired uninstalling windows explorer and system restore to no avail.
I would really appreciate any help or advice.
Here is a report for one of the error messages I received.

Preferred Solution: Windows explorer has stopped working / Host process for windows services stopped

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

after reading through all of the old replies to this thread, i can't believe that NO solution was ever reached. i noticed something was wrong a few days ago when one of my programs (Advanced Registry Optimizer 2010) no longer works when i click on it. instead i get an error message saying: setup/uninstall has stopped working:
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. i also have been getting "windows services hot process has stopped working and will shut down". i've done a couple of system restores, driver backup uninstalls. and registry backup restores, all to now avail. and everything was working so well for the last few months since i inherited this HP laptop from a dear friend who passed on last october. UGH! why is it the only permanent solution to all this madness always points to buying a MAC......there's gotta be a better way than lining bill gates pockets after having to update to a new version of WINDOWS. i guess they think we're all lemmings, huh?

After a while - sometimes immediately after startup and sometimes after a few minutes or an hour, I get the error message "Host process for windows services stopped working". After a while I am unable to open IE9 or it says "not responding" and I can't do anything with a link.

I have run malwarebytes quick scan and full scan in both normal and safe mode. I ran Spybot. I am also getting random web pages - an example is dailyconsumerguide.com, so I ran Ad-aware and now I get "Ad-watch live! has blocked svchost.ext from connecting to a malicious website" I let the various software get rid of the errors they found.

It's better, but I am still getting hung up eventually.

I appreciate any assistance.

A:Host process for windows services stopped working

Hello,Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic352797.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.Please be patient.

A:Help Host Process For Windows Services has stopped working

Hi -

Try these 3 places for additional information -

1. WERCON -
START | type view | "View all Problem Reports" | 2x-click on line item for additional crash info

2. Reliability Monitor -
START | type perfmon /rel

3. Event Viewer -
START | type eventvwr.msc | Custom Views | Administrative Events

#2 & #3 would likely be more helpful to ID the crash itself; #1 may have additional details.

Hi All,

Twice tonight I've had an error message pop up complaining that a "Host Process for windows services stopped working and was closed. A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify when a solution is available."

The first time I thought nothing of it, but the second time has left my task bar in an old format, as if Vista Aero has broken or something.

In the Problem Reports and SOlutions I believe it to be what is referred to as 'IP Helper', with the following details:

I get this message upon coming out of sleep mode or even restarting. I haven't found anything it's affecting "yet".

I ran msconfig.exe and hid the Microsoft items and disabled everything else under Services and disabled everything under Startup. Rebooted. I still get the message.

I do have Norton Premiere 2009 installed but it is not running because it's disabled in the Startup and Services, per the above.

I am currently getting a host process for windows services has stopped working, it seems to come up when i reboot my computer and whenever i try to do anything on my computer that has to do with security. I hit the close button and then retry what i did and it doesnt seem to effect anything.
The computer is a HP pavilion 6000, i bought it in august at CompUSA, and they are going out of business and wont be of any help. I have tried everything from my knowledge and brought it to the Information Technology at my school.. They cant figure it out and im fed up. I brought it to best buy and talked to Geek Squad to see if they could diagnose it. The gentleman said that it is a processor error. He said that you need a system fix disk that only licensed people can have. He said that i have 4 processors and only 3 work cause one is corrupt. Bst Buy wants 200 dollars to fix it.
If anyone is having the same problem or knows a way to fix it..PLEASE reply back and help me out ....i am so fed up with computers and this whole ordeal that i am trying my hardest to figure it out. Thank you everyone!!
 

A:host process for windows services has stopped working

I highly doubt the problem stems from a hardware issue. Chances are there is a software program on your computer that doesn't get along with Vista! And yes, even if the only software on your machine was factory installed, it still could be Vista non-compatible. Many of you XP users will remember the hassles that Roxio ez-cd caused even though machines were pumped out with an XP incompatible version.

For a clue as to what the problem is, check the Event Viewer (Control Panel - Admin Tools - Event Viewer). Post your error codes here and we may be able to help. By the way, try updating your drivers and be sure you have the latest Microsoft essential updates.

All of a sudden I am getting the general Vista error message: Host Process for Windows Services Stopped Working. When that closes, a "helpful" box pops up and tells me I might have a hard disk problem. Ran CHKDSK on the drive, no errors.

Going to the event log, I see that when the error message occurs, it points to this file: AgApplaunch.db. I don't know if this file is corrupt. I checked and it is in the Windows/Prefetch directory.

I have had the system for two years, no new changes. I first noticed the message a few days ago after I had tried to install two important Vista updates. As they were installing, the system shut itself off, and I started getting the message upon startup.

If anyone knows a resolution for this problem, it would be most appreciated.

If not, two questions:

1) Can AgApplaunch be re-installed? Either from the web or the Vista disk.

2) Is there a better disk check utility in Vista? CHKDSK ran for about 20 seconds.

Thanks!!

host process for windows services stopped working and has closed.....I saw about 4 pages of comments of people having this problem. I have been having it also, but it has gotten worse recently. I have a majic jack so that I can communicate with friends and family in the U.S., so my laptop has to be on all the time. I have a Acer Aspire 5520-5912 2g DDR, 160G HDD, AMD Turion 64x2 with windows vista home premium. When I first got this, I had very little problem other than a way to sensitive mouse pad. That alone can make me really crazy, but this problem with host process is really becoming a pain. I had quit using IE and was using Firefox, but that has crashed a lot lately, so today I downloaded Safari and what a difference. Much faster and so far no crashing, but I haven't used it after this problem. My laptop has the SP2 update which wasn't fun either. After I did the first update to sp2, I had to wipe out my laptop and re-install everything. If anyone finds a fix for this, I'd love to know; my husband just bought a new laptop and he's getting the same thing.

Hi. First post on the forum so be gentle. I'm posting this as my wife's laptop (Dell) has been performing very slowly and giving a number of error messages including the title plus "The service cannot accept control messages at this time". Looking at Task Manager there seems to be a lot of processes running at the start and there also appears to be loads of activity. I've run CC cleaner a few times and it did find a number of issues in the registry. I fixed these but the problem didn't go away. Initially I was unable to run Hijackthis but managed to get it to run after a bit of tinkering. I'm running Spyware Doctor with Anti-virus v. 7.0.0.514.I did find a ref to nvvsvc.exe on a web site and I stopped this process in Task Manager and changed the sleep option. Not sure if this has worked yet. The laptop is running pretty slow and something seems amiss.Any clues from the Hijackthis log?

A:Host Process for Windows Services has stopped working

I found this description of the fntcache.dll function-

"Windows service that optimizes performance of applications by caching commonly used font data. Applications will start this service if it is not already running."

As such, it seems to me that it would most likely pop up when starting a new application. However, I would think this error should go away after opening the same application two or more times. That's just an uneducated opinion. I've never experienced it.

Ok, this is 2011 and this problem is still happening with my laptop. I have Vista installed on my PC. The error states the above mentioned, but it normally happens once my PC has been on "hibernate" or "sleep" modes. I've received it a few times on a complete start-up but not too many times. It's annoying but hasn't caused any troubles that I can tell.

I also noticed that my Task Scheduler isn't working at all. I wonder if the two work together? I will do a separate post for the Task Scheduler.

You have all updates for Vista from that 1545 driver page? More than just IDT drivers. Bios is now A08? Only 1545 users know if that matters. Keep it in mind if nothing else works.Have no idea but think I would update to SP2 and see what happens.http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums...e6-4f88c8138197 not same computer but Vista64bit, same idt audio chip and same error. He fixed it by driver update. You already done that. OS is partly Dell with all their bundled programs so may be better to ask at their laptop forum http://en.community.dell.com/forums/3516.aspx Perhaps an issue where you need to know all details of that particular model. Could be something unrelated to audio service/driver that trigger error. What will not hurt is to type "cmd" in startmenu, rightclick and chose run as administrator. Then fire off "sfc /scannow" Checks system files for errors. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43051/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files/ for xp but same thing. And of course issues...Come to think of it also run chkdsk, cant find directions here so http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/67612-ch...isk-chkdsk.html If you post at Dell forum tell them you have done these 2 attempts to fix the unknown.

Hi

I am having multiple problems with my laptop. I have a Toshiba pre-installed with Vista.

All of a sudden, yesterday, the internet on the laptop stopped working. I have a desktop computer as well, and the internet on the other computer was working fine.

Anytime I re-started my computer, the following error message pops up from Microsoft Windows:

Host Process for Windows Services Stopped Working and was Closed.

Then, I get a pop up from Norton Anti-Virus, saying:

Auto-Protect Experienced an Unexpected Error, 0x000003E8

Everything freezes and I can't even shut down the computer and have to wait for the battery to drain.

I have tried re-starting it in 'Safe Mode with Networking'. Yesterday, in this mode, the Internet was working, but today it is not working at all.

I am at a loss as to what to do. The problem is on the laptop only. I have searched online on my desktop computer and this could be a malware/virus destroying my laptop ... but I don't know how to get rid of it when I have no internet access to download software which can search and destroy it.

Can anybody help me please?

I use Windows Vista Home Premium and the "Host Process..." window has been appearing for weeks (months?) now. Every now and then I've googled the problem, tried Microsoft's guide, and various other forum threads but I either get stuck on an instruction or stop out of fear I'm going to make the problem worse.

The problems I've been having are:
1. The pop-up window itself is an annoyance and obviously there is something wrong with Windows.
2. The task bar turns white and is almost impossible to read.
3. Alt-tab stops working (sometimes, tho a reboot usually fixes this)
4. The Aero effect stops working, the title bar at the top of the window crashes and becomes unreadable.

I have seen a fix here: Solved: How to fix : Host process for windows services stopped working and was closed - Tech Support Guy Forums BUT I can't install any of the ATI software under control panel / add remove software, there just is no uninstall option - and there are plenty of ATI / CCC entries in the list, just not the ATI - Software Uninstall Utility.

I've also considered biting the bullet and upgrading to Windows 7 (not to mention Ubuntu after googling for cheaper W7 prices!!!)

Anyway I'm fed up of putting up with a really glitchy windows interface, so I'd be really grateful if anyone can help me to get to the bottom of this.

Many thanks

Hi dangermole,

Can you run a sfc /scannow via an elevated level.

Start>All Programs>Accessories>and Right Click on Command Prompt and select 'Run as Administrator'. Click 'Yes' when prompted.
The Command Prompt window will now open up. Now type sfc /scannow and hit Enter. Let the System File checker run. This will look for any damaged system files and attempt to fix them.

Note: If you have any themes running on your system, then this process will remove them.

Hello to all!
2 weeks ago I've installed fresh new copy of Vista x64 ultimate sp1 and downloaded all critical updates. From time to time I got BSODs randomly + windows continues to spam me with message error message "Host Process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed" - in event log it appeares as

After getting this message my window appearance changes for aero to half-aero-half-classic style and language icon diappeares from taskbar (and hotkey alt+shift stoppes wirking too - can't swich from default language ). I've tried to chnage language bar settings from Control Panel (Floating/Docked/Hidden) does nothing. Only restart brings things to normal, but after unpredictable period of time it happens again .
Any suggestions?

Hello;

MICROSFT WINDOWS
Host process for windows services stopped working and was closed

a problem caused the application to stop working correctly

Windows will notify you if a solution is availible.

then there is a close button, and I click on that and nothing happens.

I also notice that when this happens, my internet connection slows considerably, and I have to reboot the computer to try and correct this.
I contacted the tech support for my computer and they are not aware of this issue, so can't help me other than to tell me to use the Vista repair. However the first time that I used this option It left my programs all in a mess, and I had to actually use PC restore to get the computer back to normal, and then add all my back up files and reinstall all my programs again. so I refuse to use that option again.

Does anyone know what this issue is with the Host services?

thank you

I have a Dell Dimension E521 with windows vista premium, with 2 gigs of ram, AMD Sempron 64 x2 dual core processor 3800+

my computer is rated at a 5.2 with the windows experience index, so it works pretty fast.

Other than that I can not think of any other information that you might need to diagnos this.

let me know if you need any other information or wish me to run some kind of diagnostics

Thank you

About a week ago, my husband visited a "not-so-trustworthy-or-wholesome" site on my laptop and I've been getting errors and redirects and major slowdowns every since. Because he panicked and started clicking buttons and running supposed virus scanners, I didn't see the original error messages, only what the computer is doing now.

The main error is "Host process for Windows services has stopped working and was closed," and also Google Chrome would give me a message of something like "the account (or maybe identity?) requires a newer version of Google Chrome" and every time I would do a Google search, it would find results, but when I click on any of the search results it would take me to some kind of download page, no matter what the search result was supposed to be. I'm sorry I don't have exacts on this. When it was giving me so much trouble, I uninstalled Google Chrome.

Chrome and IE are very slow to respond, if they respond at all, but Firefox is noticeably better (at least I have something!).

I've also tried downloading and running several anti-spyware/anti-virus programs, including StopZilla and Spyware Doctor (the free version) but the programs continue to lock up without completing a scan. One time it showed I had something along the lines of 7 threats and 500 infections (or vice versa maybe) but it locked up before I could quarantine or delete anything.

"Host Process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed."

OK. I get this error msg about every 30 mins. I do NOT get the error when booted in safe mode with networking.

I am working on a friend's computer, a toshiba satellite L305 running vista32.

When I got his computer it was heavily virus-infected, including conficker. It is now clean, and windows and trendmicro are up to date.

After checking error logs, it appears that this specific error msg did not begin until after the system was cleaned and updated.

I tried process explorer, but honestly couldn't figure out what I was looking for. I would see the error event do something while watching process explorer, but was never able to identify which svchost.exe entry was the buggy one.

After reviewing so many support docs regarding this error, I have become overwhelmed and haven't been very systematic... I've just been trying a bunch of different fixes to no avail. At this point, I can't even recall what I've done.

My very feeble intuition is pointing towards some problem with a scheduled task or perhaps a conflict between trendmicro antivirus and antispyware and windows defender (defender is not running).

You folks do seem to really know what you're doing, so I'm hoping you can help me out. Plus, maybe I'll learn something along the way.

I currently have Windows Vista 2006 with all current updates. I am having a problem when I start up my Dell E521 desktop computer as administrator. Sometimes when I turn the computer on I receive the following 2 messages:

Check to make sure the disk is properly inserted or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location."

"Windows could not connect to the Group Policy Client Service. this prevents limited users from logging on the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond."

I close off these 2 messages and only the recycle bin appears on my desktop. So I shut down the computer and restart. I do not receive the 2 messages above and my desktop appears with all icons shown. However, the following message appears:

All sollutions on the net are to complicated, so I put this simple FIX that will work for all.
no fixing registry or systemfiles. Just plane remove and reinstall.

THIS IS THE REAL FIX:

It was a bit difficult to figure it out, but during a couple of days I fixed the problem. I have a DELL laptop windows 7 system with AMD64 duo core and ATI videocard.
First of all you need to download driver sweeper ( just google it) and also the driver of your ati videocard. In my case I got my DELL driver update and that include catalyst also. If it is not included download catalyst, but a very early update.

OK. now uninstall all of Catalyst/ATI components and also the driver from your ati video card.

uninstall Catalyst/ATI components by going to control panel and then programs.
Uninstall ati videocard by going to control panel and device manager. select also DELETE DRIVER if you remove it.

Now you install driver sweeper.

Restart your system in safe mode without network. A allround video driver is now installed.

Use driver sweeper and choose to clean AMD video driver.

Restart your system again to normal mode.

Now install catalyst and restart system.

Now it is working again

No Thanks

Please help. I am having Host Process for Windows Services stopped working error.

Computer Gateway with AMD Phenom 9600 Quad-core 2.3Ghz
RAM 4 GB
32 bit OS (Windows Home Premium) with SP2

My internet is not working (IE, Firefox, Windows live Mail) but I can see other computers on my network and those other computers can connect with the internet.

Event viewer shows a list of critical errors: all showing as:
RpcServerUseProtseq:ncacn_ip_tcp error 1721

In addition, the events viewer also shows errors for Diagnostic Policy service terminating and and error called svchost.exe_MpsSvc.

In order to resolve the issue, I first did a restore to about 1 week ago, but that did not correct the problem. Now I am lost. Please help.

Hi. I get this pop up error message every time I use my computer. About 15 minutes into using it I get a pop up that says, "host process for windows services stopped working and was closed. A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available."
After this error message comes, Windows Explorer CONSTANTLY stops responding and everytime i open the start menu and use the search bar on it, it stops responding. I click to restart Windows Explorer. It closes but does not restart. I even try to run the process in Task Manager, but to no avail. This is really ticking me off right now and I cannot click anything in my desktop and cannot browse files on my computer. Does anyone have a solution? Thanks!

I don't think this has ever happened before (I've had the laptop for about 8 months), but I did install HP printer software a few days ago. I downloaded the latest vista driver for the printer from Hewlett Packard's website, everything installed fine, and the software updated itself automatically to the latest version, so I don't know if it's printer-related.

I've looked all over the internet and found people with similar problems but none of the threads have been of any help, so I would appreciate anything you can do for me.

Basically whenever I have multiple applications going my taskbar freezes and eventually I get the "Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working" message and I have to shut down. (Lately I have also gotten "Windows Host Process (Rundll32) Has Stopped Working" too.) From my experience on threads this seems common for people with HPs running Vista.

This seems a lot like a virus, so I've been running AVG like crazy and it's had a few "virus found lops" (whatever that means) and a few days ago it says it found a Trojan Horse (which I think is out of nowhere since I hadn't downloaded or done anything in weeks prior) I told it to heal the trojan and now it's hanging out in the virus vault.. don't know if that's solved it or not.

I did a system restore which seemed to fix things for a few days, but now it's back and system restores aren't doing any good. All that has been installed are windows updates.

I need my computer fixed pronto before I go back to university, I would really appreciate any help I could get..

Hi There,

Our desktop computer has recently started displaying this message shortly after rebooting and, although we can access the internet after this message, we can't download new e-mail messages, update antivirus definitions (last antivirus definition was downloaded 4 days ago) or open just about any program (TFC, Malwares, etc). When trying to open these programs, I get an error message that says either "The Service cannot accept control messages at this time" or "The pipe state is invalid." Please help!

Just a guess here, But have you tried uninstalling your antivirus program. Then see how the computers runs. If it runs fine after. Try reinstalling a antivirus program of choice. Some times when a antivirus software gets corrupted. It can cause these problems. Also some antivirus dats .Can cause the problems you are having, Good luck hope this helps

Ok i've been working on this for a few hours now. I am trying to fix what is wrong with my mother in-law's PC. The error message i'm getting is this

"Host Process for windows services stopped working and has closed. A problem caused the application to stop working correctly"

When I check the event logs it seems to be this causing it...

"Event 1000
Faulting Application: svchost.exe version 6.0.6001.18000 timestamp 0x47918b89"

I have researched and it seems to be a program that causes this but it could be any number of programs. The only recent programs that were installed were Adobe Acrobat 7, which I uninstalled...still got same error message. Adobe Shockwave, uninstalled...same error and Microsoft .net Framework, started to uninstall but was afraid it would cause problems, so did a 'repair'.

Somewhere within the event log it also showed an error next to AVG Free8 Email and AVG Web. So I tried to locate these programs, I located them in 'services.msc'. I was unable to uninstall them from there. The computer doesn't use AVG antivirus, it has Avast, so I don't need those services. So then I located the actual folder within the PC and tried to delete it and it said that I don't have permission to do that. The PC only has one user account, it is the master account so I don't know why I get this message.

I am at my wits end with this thing. Could this be a spyware/malware program or is it just a pro... Read more

That's cool there must be no possible solution for this problem. Once you get it just throw you're PC away. I notice numerous people have posted with this same exact problem and got no responses. Good to know.
