Running under Vista Bussiness 64 bit.

since a couple of days, I get almost every day this problem:
A popup windows tells:
Host process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed.
and a similar note for Windows Media Network .....
The screen reslution changes spontaneously then.
After a while Vista completely halts and shows the blue screen in which a memory crash dump is made.
Then it reboots and after it's ready, I see the message that Windows has restarted from an unexpected shutdown.
The process is repeating, somtimes after minutes, sometimes after hours.
I didn't have an earlier restore point to downgrade far enoug back.
already did the Repair option from the DVD: startup repair, rthere was nothing wrong.

Would Vista show this behaviour if some application driver causes it?

Can I reinstall Vista over the existing install without losing my registry application data?

Click on the run box (in accessories), and type eventvwr in the box, then click OK. What is the "host process service" event error connected to? Does it give a program, driver or?
