    Windows Host Services has stopped working

    I see this is not an unknown problem but I also don't see any reply that
    fixes the issue so I will post again.

    Problem signature
    Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
    Application Name: svchost.exe
    Application Version: 6.0.6000.16386

    Extra information about the problem
    Bucket ID: 500355740

    I am getting this error repeatedly and it is forcing a reboot as Windows
    Explorer stops working. I am hoping someone has a suggestion so I don't have
    to reformat as I am not paying MS $60.00 to fix there OS. I have Vista
    Premium installed on 2 pc's and have been running it since it came out. It
    only started doing this after my last reformat

    Well you have a particular service that is crashing (and bringing down its
    host), but you can't deduce much beyond that from that error message alone
    (unless you work for MS). See if there are any other accompanying error
    messages in event viewer which can help you identify the problematic
    service.

    Re: Windows Host Services has stopped working

    Oops missed the module name there. This is your clue anyhow

    StackHash_842b

    Find that file on your system (probably StackHash_842b.dll, and examine it,
    and see what program it relates to.

    You may wish to precede that with a virus scan

    I have the same problem, though it happens if I open anything, not just
    control panel (looking through files, etc.) and it happens even more when i
    open two such windows at once. My error report is:

    Re: Windows Host Services has stopped working

    More than likely you have installed a program
    that has added something to Windows Explorer
    shell/context menu. Maybe even an Internet
    Explorer add-on. What programs have you installed
    recently or since this started happening?

    Read through this thoroughly;
    http://windowsxp.mvps.org/slowrightclick.htm

    Use this program to enable/disable shell extensions;

    I was probably incorrect in my first response. There's probably no such
    module.

    I'm not sure exactly what it means, but there seem to be a number of threads
    with this StackHash problem. You could peruse some of these to see if
    there's an explanation amongst them

    Re: Windows Host Services has stopped working

    After looking through many of these discussion groups last night, I found one
    that pointed out Microsoft FamilySaftey as the problem, which makes sense. A
    quick registry fix, and I was all set.

    You can't. It's just a place holder used when the stack is so
    messed up windows can't even figure out where it was when it crashed. It's
    not causing your problem but you can't figure out what is from this
    information.

    Hello,

    Do you happen to have Nvidia Firewall installed on the machine such as
    Network Access Manager or ActiveArmor Firewall? If so, there will likely be
    a DLL called nvappfilter.dll in c:\windows\system32 directory. As a
    troubleshooting step, you could use Add/Remove programs to uninstall that
    program and see if it makes the problem go away. Please reply with your
    results.

    There is a lot of discussion on the Nvidia site concerning the
    nvappfilter.dll

    Have you Checked for Solutions? I don't see a Fault Bucket entry there,
    which might be the key missing element. That data as it is isn't enough to
    really point you to anything. You could use the Windows Debugging SDK to
    debug this, but that sounds like overkill comparatively. =\
