Host Process for Windows Services has stopped working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am experiencing problems with my wireless network since I get this message. I have limited connectivity when connected to both of my wireless accesspoints.

    This is what I found in the event viewer (error event):
    Faulting application svchost.exe_Dnscache, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x47918b89, faulting module termsrv.dll, version 6.0.6000.16386, time stamp 0x4549bde8, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x00006555, process id 0x530, application start time 0x01c96f02b834f1d4.

    I hope someone can help me to find a solution to this. I have been googling for a solution, but not many results show up. So far, I didn't find a solution.

    Many thanks in advance!

  • I have the same issue.  I am running Windows Server 2008 on my laptop, and for some reason the DNS client service keeps stoping.  In addition to the above error, I also get the following:

    Log Name:      Application
    Source:        Application Error
    Date:          4/23/2009 8:24:21 PM
    Event ID:      1000
    Task Category: (100)
    Level:         Error
    Keywords:      Classic
    User:          N/A
    Computer:      <My computer name>
    Faulting application svchost.exe_NlaSvc, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x47919291, faulting module DNSAPI.dll, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x4791ace0, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x000000000000d64a, process id 0x1d24, application start time 0x01c9c3b877506cc0.
    Event Xml:
    <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
        <Provider Name="Application Error" />
        <EventID Qualifiers="0">1000</EventID>
        <TimeCreated SystemTime="2009-04-24T01:24:21.000Z" />
        <Computer>****removed to protect the guilty***</Computer>
        <Security />

    If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.

    As an added thought, this happens when I am NOT in the office.  That coupled with the fact that the NlaSvc is the "Network Location Awareness" make me wonder if there isn't some issue with the firewall, or the services that manage the firewall state.

    Thoughts anyone?

  • Hi Jan,

    I believe you should have by now understood that Host Process stopped working is a very generic message.  Can you get me a snapshot of the information given in "Problem reports and solution"
    such as what it says under "Solutions to install" and "Information about other problems". If you are connecting via router check if you can bypass the router.  If you have a router then it could be a router firmware update.
