Host Process For Windows Stopped Working Error
Smartphones Fun Stuff Search site How to Fix "Host process for windows services stopped working and was closed" Don't you just love cryptic Windows errors? In this post, I'll be going through some steps you can take to fix the "Host process for windows services stopped working and was closed" error message in Windows. I've already written about a few, such as "there no active mixer devices available" error message, the "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" message and the "runonce.msn.com runonce2.aspx error in IE7". Sadly, most of these error messages give you no insight into what the problem actually is. When getting the Host process error you might also notice that your Internet connection in Windows slows down considerably and you might have to constantly restart the computer to fix it. This error seems to occur due to an incompatibility between a program on your computer and the Windows OS. It could be a lot of different applications, so you first have to determine which program is actually causing the problem. You can do this by viewing the Event Logs on your Windows machine. Here's how. First go to Start and go to the Control Panel. Now depending on the view, you can either click on Administrative Tools if you are in Classic view or click on System and Maintenance if you are in normal view. In Classic view, you will see an icon for Event Logs or Event Viewer and in normal view you will see a link at the very bottom called "View event logs". Now browse through the Windows Logs folder and view the Application and System logs. Look for events with red X's next to them and that have the word Error. Look for them around the same time or before you got the "Host process for Windows stopped working" error message. Method 1 Some people have had this issue with ATI Catalyst Control Center and found numerous errors in their event log. You can then try to find an update for the program or uninstall it if it is not needed. You might also have this problem with Windows Defender, so make sure to run Windows Update. Also uninstall useless HP printer software, and check for other events from Nero, etc. Method 2 An incompatible driver installed on Windows could also cause the error. This could be for any piece of hardware on your system.
