Host Process for Windows Services has stopped Working


  • I get an error message saying "Host Process for Windows Services has stopped Working" when I start Vista Business on a Sony VAIO notebook. When I click to "search online for a solution", I am taken to a page about "Data Execution Prevention" - which does not seem to be relevant.

    I can't restore the OS from a previous date to resolve the issue as the versions I have are not as old as this problem.

    I have not installed any new software except Google Earth and the No Script java script blocker Plug-In for Mozilla Firefox. 

    The only thing that seems affected in the graphics which look faded.

    I've read the previous posts on this forum but none of the issues discussed seem to match my situation exactly.

    I have asked Sony Tech support who suggest a complete system recovery - easiest solution when you
    don't know what to do !

    If you have a simpler solution, I would appreciate you letting me know.

    What's the specific fault data for this crash according to the Problem Reports and Solution Center control panel's "View Problem History"?
