Superfetch and Windows host process stopped working

Q: Superfetch and Windows host process stopped working

Ive been recently having an issue with my laptop whenever I turn it on. It keeps saying superfetch stopped working and then another window pops up saying windows host processes stopped working. I'm not sure if this is related but I also have a problem when I get it out of sleep mode. The screen stays black with only the mouse showing and it can take up to 30 mins before the screen comes back to normal. I have no idea what to do or where to start. Ive scanned for viruses but it found nothing.

Preferred Solution: Superfetch and Windows host process stopped working

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.)

How do I stop a window popping up every time that says Host Process stopped working?
 

A:Windows Host Process stopped working

There's no easy fix for that generic error message, I'm afraid.

Have you read the following links?

When did this start happening? Any other symptoms? Does anything stop working?

I have seen a  number of posts diagnosing this issue, however, they seem specific for each user so I thought I should ask for help specifically for me. I get this message periodically (once every day or two), but there does not seems to be any problems associated with it.  I do have a couple issues that may or may not be part of it.  One is that I periodically lose network connection from my Ethernet connection. The computer icons in the task bar seem to be still showing communication but the Networking and Sharing page shows limited connection to the router and no connection to the internet.   My router is still working however since I can use WiFi on another device.  I end up having to restart the computer to get the connection back.  Another issue I have is this message in the Event Viewer:  "The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer MYNETN600 that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{A07981E3-3A87-43F5-970A-BE5DBA13. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced."  The latter issue is a real pain, the previous one - not so much.
 
I am running Vista Home Premium  32 bit with Service Pack 2 installed.
 
Thanks for your help

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.

I get the error message "Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working..." just after logging in. I am running Vista Home Premium 32-bit version. I also have uninstalled several programs via the control panel, but when I go to msconfig and look at the services and startup list, executables and services relating to these uninstalled programs are still on those lists. Also I just started getting the Rundll32 message after installing Vista Service Pack 1. Also, right after installing this service pack, winamp version 5.52 just stopped working and when i try to play a song, i get an error code 88780078. Any clues to a solution?

Thanks,

I'm sure its not the right answer but when mine did the same thing I found that minimizing the window (so not all of the vids were not opening at the same time) it wouldn't cause the rundll32 thinging to pop up, it seemed like to me it overloaded rundll32 when it tried to open the whole folder at once..?

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?

I been having this problem for almost a week now and it makes me want to rip my hair out! Lol, everything usually works fine when I first boot the computer up and when I'm on the internet for a little while that message pops up then internet explorer closes and I can use firefox. Then after I hit cancel on the message when I try to open other programs or save in notepad it freezes then the Not responding message pops up. Also when I try to go to the control panel same thing, it freezes then the bottom task bar changes like a different theme. Idk what to do it's really bugging me out, I looked up the message on alot of sites and each thread is just filled with people saying they have the same message and each thing the person says to do doesn't work for me. In the event log I don't see anything, I can't go to the control panel because it freezes. I'm gonna try to uninstall my firewall but I can't even get to remove programs window. And system restore doesn't work. Sorry for the whole paragraph of every little problem I just don't know what to do. Thanks

A:Windows Host Process Stopped Working And Was Closed

Try in safe mode and then report back. Your answer will give a lot of clues, about what to do next.
If it works in safe mode, the next step would be a clean boot to determine the precise nature of the problem.
If it does not work, we may go with system restore.
Report back before each step.

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.

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.

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.

Hi, got a malware/trojan problem. Been trying to get rid of it but the problem still sticks around.I'm running Windows Vista 32 bit. Downloaded something and ran it and the icon just disappeared. I kind of know that was a malware or trojan of some sort. I have Symantec AntiVirus 10.2.0.276 on my computer. The auto protection popped up and detected a W32.Virut.CF and a bunch Packed.Generic.233. They were cleaned by deletion by Symantec.From that point on, Symantec would pop up every once in a while saying Auto-Protect has found Packed.Generic.233 and performed action - cleaned by deletion. Filename would be C:\Windows\SericeProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Temp\VRTXXXX.tmp where XXXX are alpha numerics that varies. In addition, when I open some directory or click on Mouse Pointers, Theme, Display Settings, etc. in Control Panel/Personalization, the following error would pop up - "Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working"I googled around for that problem and some said they had that problem and it was caused by nero or their dvd rom, or some cd burning software, or some video editting software. And usually the solution is to rename some .ax files to something else. That wasn't my problem as I tried it on three of my Nero related .ax files. I'm kind of leaning towards the conclusion that it has something to do with the trojan or malware that my computer was infected with since the Rundll32 problem started to ac... Read more

Hello, I run Vista home premium 32 bit. Lately my computer has been running really slow so at first I thought it was a virus and ran various virus and malware removal programs, still didn't fix the problem. I also ran some registry cleaners which I think may have caused this problem. When I click on Mouse in the control panel I get this error "Unable to connect to the synaptics point device driver" and then I get another error saying "Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working", as in the title. Can anyone help me with this? By the way, I figured out that the problem was I had Mysqld.exe on my computer which I don't need, so I don't use that anymore.

Try a system restore from a time before the problem.

If you cannot use that method try this:

If that does not work

You may want to try a repair install.

Vista, SP2-

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've attached a .doc which contains all the errors in the event log. Note that they are in reverse order of occurrence.

I recently downloaded a music editing software called Sony Acid Pro 7, the downloading process was simple. But when i try and open the program it pops up and freezes and the error message reads 'Windows host process Rundll32 has stopped working', it never opens. I have tried deleting and re downloading it three times. This program is very expensive, it would be a shame to have to return this, i was so excited about starting up my dream in music production.

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.

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.

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..

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.
